This was a wine at a party to mourn/celebrate the changing of the guard in Washington DC. It's not a wine I had seen before, but given the propensity of the dogs who have resided here over the years to chase them, tasting a 2012 Secret Squirrel sounded like a fun idea.
The wine is from Washington state and is a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. Medium weight, slightly rustic, full of both fruit and tannin. Nothing spectacular but a fun wine to taste during the evening. And even though the wine is more than adequate the best part was the name and the label. 14% alcohol.
