Very concentrated and layered, this deeply colored and full-bodied wine has a powerful mouthfeel and firm tannins underlying the saturated cherry, earth and game nuances that come out with each sip.
The depth of dark berry fruit and spicy finish distinguish this wine. Framed by floral notes and lightly toasted oak, we are proud of this California Syrah. The wines blended in are all traditional Rhone varieties and are used to add complexity the red fruit component of the wine, add some spiciness, and improve the overall balance.
The small percentage of new oak, 20%, as well as the exclusive use of French and Hungarian Oak, also gives the wine some tobacco and smoky subtly notes.
