Winemaker's Notes

Immense blue-black color and deep blueberry, caramel and chocolate aromas invite the palate to a bowl of black cherries, just sweet enough to provide a satisfactory close to a great meal. Tones of blackberry and cassis suggest the syrah brandy which was made in an old alambic still to stop the fermentation of this full-blooded petite sirah from Guenoc. A bright band of flavors remains on the tongue in a long, delicious finish.

Table Suggestions: Enjoy with Stilton Cheese with walnuts or pistachios, dark chocolate cake or truffles, gorgonzola.
