Inky dark color. Pepper, chocolate and cassis on the nose followed by unctuous plum, chocolate and mint on the palate. Lingering finish with a hint of sage. JO (2/20)
Heavy winter rains broke the drought, replenishing moisture to the soil. Warm summer weather helped bring the mataro, a late ripening grape, to perfect maturity. Excellent concentration from the syrah brings color and depth. After twelve months in barrel, tannins have softened, revealing the spicy character of this Rhône varietal wine. Enjoyable upon release, it will evolve over another six-to seven years.
