For the quantities, 14/3/2/1? Just enough V to give it that lovely floral aroma that it's so good at?
Let's see, that would be 70% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, 10% Grenache, and 5% Viognier.
Sounds interesting, but in what style would this be made? French Hermitage - lower alc, terrior-driven, food friendly? Or Aussie fruit bomb - higher alc, big fruit, sweet-like (but still dry), drink on its own? I know the first Publend went over 17% alcohol, so the potential is there.
If I decide to go in on this, I'll just get 2 or 3 from Sparky, since he said he wants to split his case if you go GSM/SMGV.
