An unusual blend of two-thirds Petite Sirah and one third Petit Verdot, this wine offers notes of baking spices, freshly tilled soil, dried cherries and flowers. The palate brings a mixture of purple and black fruit, backed by a wall of near-impenetrable tannins that still show balance and restraint.
