With 80% Syrah, 20% Grenache and 15 months in oak, this is a big, powerful wine loaded with rich fruit and sultry spice. Dark cherry, cigar box, cinnamon and cardamom abound on the nose, with more kirsch, pepper and allspice unfolding on the palate. Creamy and lush in the mouth with a long, evolving finish full of mocha and dark chocolate-covered cherries. Delicious now or hold for 2-3 years.
