This is a vineyard blend of many varieties, dominated by 24% Syrah, 20% Sangiovese and 12% Zinfandel, the balance a mishmash of Cinsaut, Dolcetto and other rare grapes. Floral in orange peel and violets, it's also meaty and buoyant in acidity, the remaining flavors sexy in red fruit like pomegranate and raspberry. This is a delightfully complex and unique wine.
