Tasting notes

“Opaque garnet color. Fruity aromas of black cherry, lingonberry, black licorice, and pomegranate with a velvety, dry medium-to-full body and a smooth, complex, black cherry, crushed plum, dried strawberry, and blackberry compote finish with soft tannins and light oak. Packed with dark, juicy, jammy fruit that manages to keep all in balance with finesse, structure and a bright cherry note through to the juicy finish and well-integrated taught tannins.”

Production notes

The two principal varieties (Syrah 49%, Mouvedre 46%) are whole cluster fermented ie; stems and all. This, stylistically, is very different mouthfeel wise from our individual straight varietal offerings which are fermented under a different regime. The Petite Sirah (5%) in this case adds a touch of freshness to the fruit as well as the color and supple tannin you would expect.
