A Syrah from two cooler-climate vineyards that is blended with 24% Zinfandel, this crowd-pleaser is surprisingly complex in thick, meaty tannins and black, brambly fruit. The juiciness of the Zin cuts through the denser aspects of the wine though, with the naturally high acidity keeping everything in check and pleasantly vibrant.
