Alcohol By Volume


Deep purple color with aromas of blackberries, sweet oak, licorice, peach, and white flowers. Palate of dense, dark berries, fine-grained tannins, fennel, and gamey notes. Finishes with clay earth mineral dustiness, spice, and toasted oak. EB (8/18)
Though weakened by five years of drought, the vines set a good crop. Mid- September heat fully ripened the grapes. Whole berries of syrah and viognier co-fermented in four small tanks. Eight days of fermentation extracted deep color and firm tannins. Twenty-six months in barrel softened those tannins. This opulent wine will continue to develop over the next decade.
