...6 of us tasted 6 grenache/syrah/mouvedre blends. The lowest points is the favorite.

6. 2014 Cline Cashmere $13 - 30pts - 2 lasts (lighter without a lot going on)

5. 2014 Domaine le Renard Cairanne $22 - 28pts - 2 lasts

4. 2015 Hahn Central Coast $15 - 20pts - 2 firsts, 1 last

3. 2011 Cypher The Peasant Paso Robles $35 - 18pts - 1 first (my third) - very fruity

2. 2012 Villa Creek Avenger Paso Robles $50 - 17pts - 1 first, 1 last (my second)

1. 2014 Crooked Path The Wanderer Paso Robles $15 (BevMo 5 cent sale) - 13pts - 2 firsts (my first)

All were very drinkable so it was difficult scoring them. But they changed quite a bit over the hour and half and by the end the rankings were clearer. The #1 wine started out good and got better - recommended.

I liked the 2014 better but still a great value.

Getting it here in Houston for less than $11, $9 if you buy six bottles.

I used to belong to Cypher wine club but they got a little pricey.

 

Just corrected the price on the winner...(nt), posted on May 21, 2017 at 10:03:25
