Winemaker's Notes:

A Rhone-style blend of 47% Grenache, 47% Shiraz and 6% Mourvedre.

Crimson with ruby hues. Displays intense berry fruit aromas with a deep underlying smoky spice. Savory oak is also evident, underlying the primary fruit characters. On the palate, the wine displays a fine depth of deep, spicy fruit flavor, rich in cinnamon and licorice characters with a background of dusty, soft ripe tannins. The rich core of dark fruit is supported by a long, elegant finish.

My Notes:
