Secret Squirrel

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.
