"As you begin your journey into 'The Unknown', delight in the aromas of ripe blackberries, plums, black licorice & spice. As you journey further, to that first sip, savor the lush, well rounded, full mouth filling flavors of plums, currants, figs and black raspberries. At last it all comes together. Find the completeness of your journey's end with the haunting, lingering finishing characteristics of roasted coffee, black & red berries dipped in chocolate and blackberry pie. Now the challenging question: Do you know what varietals went into 'The Unknown'?"
"The Answer to Your Question Is: 70% Syrah, 20% Petite Sirah, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Viognier." -Winery
