*** $$ Opine Cellars The Offering Syrah/Grenache, 2005, Central Coast, CA - Review and Rating

Review: Color is deep magenta red, moves to opaque at the center. Aroma is beefy: bloody red meat and a hint of ink. A peppery sweet alcoholic punch comes first, followed by an esophogus-warming flush. The finish works a long time before leaving the scene of this pleasant-enough assault. Still quite young. Three stars out of five.  Higher if the alcohol heat was tempered.
