"This wine is a blend of Syrah (76%), Grenache (21%) and Viognier (3%). Perfumed aromas of orange peel, flowers, spice and dark fruit lead to plump raspberry and smoked meat flavors. It needs time to unwind."

"Taut, with a firm texture to focused blueberry, plum and spice flavors that expand and persist on the finish. Syrah, Grenache and Viognier. Best from 2017 through 2021. 245 cases made."
Silky but concentrated, with plum skin, black currants and cocoa powder. A savory note weaves through, reminiscent of bay leaf and olive. The palate is thick, with black fruit, spice and a saline quality giving it a mouthwatering impression. The tannins provide framework, but are fine and melt away. The finish has great lift and has a fresh and floral black tea perfume.
