The composition of this blend is unusual: Syrah and Mourvèdre come with Pinot Grigio and Roussanne. The result is a spicy, raw, green, saucy nose that announces a tannic, pinched palate. Herbal dark-berry flavors are gritty and suggest eucalyptus, while the finish is spicy and green, with hard tannins.
