Hailing from a vineyard planted 900 meters above sea level, this Syrah-led blend is black as night, gaseous on the nose and loaded with heavy, ripe berry flavors. It's rich, chewy, dense and delivers a truck load's worth of blackberry, boysenberry, prune and chocolate on top of a rugged, brawny, saturated foundation.
