Another perfect wine is the 2016 James Berry Vineyard Rocket Block, which always comes from a single block of the oldest Grenache vines in the James Berry Vineyard as well as around one-third of Mourvèdre. Its deep ruby/purple hue is followed by incredibly complex notes of black fruits, chocolate, cured meats, flowery incense, and assorted spicy, meaty, Mourvèdre-dominated nuances. Full-bodied, voluptuous, and perfectly balanced, with that rare sense of intensity paired with elegance, it has some upfront appeal, but do your best to give bottles 2-4 years of bottle age.

Dense and rich, this full-throttle blend offers intricately layered blackberry, crushed stone and smoky meat accents that drive toward big but polished tannins. Grenache, Mataro, Counoise and Syrah. Drink now through 2032. 230 cases made.
