WTN: Living Vicar-iously

2010 Pax Grenache/Mourvedre/Syrah The Vicar - USA, California, North Coast (8/6/2014)
Much better showing than my first bottle back in April. A few months of settling down have made this much more inviting. There's lots of berry/cherry fruit on the front end, and the alcohol is integrated (where it really stuck out back in April). I don't get much in terms of any herbal/earthy elements, so it's a bit one note, but it's a good drink. Would like to see more Mourvedre & Syrah influence. Right now it drinks like straight Grenache, which is not my favorite new world grape.
Talk less, smile more. Don't let them know what you're against or what you're for.
