Between Five Bells Red Cuvee

Between Five Bells Red Cuvee. The 2011 is a blend of seven grapes, but it’s almost 90 percent Syrah, with 4 percent each of Mourvedre and Grenache, making it a very Rhone Valley-esque blend. The winemakers cofermented a few white varietals with the reds, adding layers of complexity. Whereas some of the GSM blends can be heavy-handed, this one, though serious, is very approachable, with notes of tea, spice, and ripe black and red fruit. About $70 in retail stores.
