Our Review

This wine is a blend of Syrah (60%) and Grenache (30%), with the balance Mourvèdre (12%) and Grenache. It brings high-toned aromas of dark fruit, vanilla and pipe tobacco. The palate is full bodied and supple in feel, with pitch-black fruit flavors and lingering vanilla highlights. There's a lot of appeal.
