Winemaker's Notes

This Syrah has rich complex layers of New World fruit with ripe berry flavors, violets and purple currants on the palate. Aromas of wild mulberries, spicy black berries, and floral notes follow with spicy, and toasty oak. Rich, fruit-driven flavors on the palate linger through a long finish.

Blend: 94% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre, 1% Viognier
