Winemaker's Notes

Blackberry flavors are spiked by black pepper. Petite Sirah adds a little tannin, plenty of rich blue-black color and black fig spice. Barbera lightens up the mix with red plum and red cherry juicy fruit. There is also a fourth dimension of exotic sandalwood, vanilla, cola and smoky meatiness.

The structure, depth, and complexity of this wine leads itself perfectly to an herb crusted leg of lamb, spiced couscous, and roasted root vegetables.
