Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 47% Grenache, 41% Shiraz, 12% Mourvédre

"This blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre is typically silky smooth, with nuts, dark cherries, and plums a plenty, the plush palate gradually tapering off to a lingering finish. A complex, rich and powerful wine!"
-Peter Fraser, Winemaker
