Olson Ogden has made a nice blend from several of its single-vineyard designates, using Syrah (57%), Counoise (22%), Pinot Noir (14%) and Marsanne (7%). It's full of flavor, chewy like sliced meats and savory herbs, concentrated and thick with tannins. The finish is long with a note of black pepper.
