A brawny yet refined expression of oak and coffee, this is an intense red wine crafted from mostly Syrah grapes, with smaller amounts of Petite Syrah, Zinfandel, Alicante Bouschet and Mourvèdre. Well-made it is balanced and age-worthy, the proper pour for a slab of grilled meat slathered in spicy sauce.
