This blend of predominantly Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Counoise—with all the fruit coming from Red Heaven Vineyard—brings notes of chocolate, smoke, blackberry, char and toast. Lusciously rich with fruit and chocolate flavors, barrel notes play a big part in the show, but there is much to enjoy here.
