Merkin Vineyards Chupacabra 2015 45% Grenache 40% Syrah 15% Mourvedre from Cochise County fruit. These grapes are aged in Neutral French Oak to give the grapes time to relax and come together as a full bodied red. The 2015 version of the Chupcabara is the best I have ever tasted. GSM: a Classic blend from one of the great regions of the world “Chateauneuf de Pape”, this 2015 Chupacabra is a killer. Matt@Sip Wine ”
