Tasting Notes

Dense, deep in color, almost black with flashes of royal purple and a spark of red. A generously aromatic wine with maraschino cherry and peppery spice, interwoven with whiffs of violet. Lusciously ripe on the silky palate with vibrant minerality. Lingering flavors of anise and clove add to the allure. An elegant example of single-vineyard syrah.
