Principally Syrah, with 6% Viognier (presumably cofermented), this is sourced from a vineyard planted by Patty Green. Some good grapes go into this wine, but it has emerged with an off-putting sweaty aroma that carries into the flavors. Apart from that there is thin cranberry fruit along with notes of lemon and unsalted peanuts.
