An extraordinary Syrah, from Ciel du Cheval grapes. It's supple and silky, yet retains classic fresh raspberry, cherry and boysenberry fruit that's bright and crisply defined by natural acids. The panoply of flavors is seamlessly woven into chocolaty tannins, with a final kick of gravelly minerality.
