Our Review

A blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache, this is an impressive wine, from a new producer in the Napa Valley. Aromas of blueberry, espresso and a pinch of pepper give way to the vibrant palate, which is packed with tannins and a dusting of dark chocolate. It's not overdone, and should hold well for another year or so.
