A lush nose of mocha, cinnamon, pepper and clove starts this smooth wine with style. Flavors of cedar, spice and rich fruit are complex and delivered in a mouthfilling, structured wave. A spicy finish adds to the appeal. Ageable but good to drink now; pair with cheese and smoked meats. A blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Kotsifali.
