Three sources of fruit make their way into this wine: Petite Sirah from Sonoma Valley's Rossi Ranch and Del Carlo Ranch in Dry Creek Valley, as well as Syrah from Rosella's in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Together they offer leathery black licorice and a smooth, yet grippy texture, balanced by decent acidity and length, with a twist of milk chocolate.
