Robert Biale Basic Black 2014


SKU 49601


Loaded with bass notes and complex undertones which interplay beautifully with exploding aromas of blackberry, violets, spiced ham, cinnamon, graphite, rosemary, and an earthy forest floor component. Flavors of dark chocolate and dark fruits are integrated and proportioned across a foundation of dense tannins for a beautiful mouth feel, fresh and snappy acidity, and ripe fruit. The lovely finish is the signature of this elegant, surprisingly feminine, and remarkably balanced red wine blend that is immediately drinkable and worthy of 5-7 years more.

Wine EnthusiastMeant to be brawny explosive wine, this blends 25% Syrah, 22% Grenache, 20% Petite Sirah, 17% Carignane and smaller drops of Zinfandel, Alicante Bouschet and Tempranillo in a classic field-blend style. Juicy and expansive on the palate, it has meaty tannin and leather as well as licorice, violet and pepper,. A lengthy streak of black pepper finishing things out.
