Our Review

This is a blend of Syrah (42%), Mourvèdre (38%) and Grenache (22%) with fruit that's picked at the beginning of the growing season, and then aged in 30% new oak. It's a very pure expression of the variety, with notes of black cherry, coffee, cocoa and graphite. The finish is long, with a lick of chocolate.
