Winemaker's Notes

Varietal Composition: 50% Syrah, 50% Bonarda

Dark reddish/purple color. Intense aroma of black raspberries. This medium-bodied, very lively wine has loads of ripe red plum and black raspberry flavors with a slightly spicy character and a long, juicy finish.

Certainly enjoyable in its youth, but will age beautifully. A fun wine to try with a wide range of red wine-friendly foods.

Nice red, but I liked the Malbec from this vineyard better.
