Full and complex, this Syrah-dominated Rhône-style blend includes Grenache and Mourvèdre, and it's cofermented with a splash of Viognier. The luscious cranberry and raspberry flavors are annotated with citrus, red licorice and wet stone accents. Suggestions of tropical fruits, such as papaya and pineapple, add more interest.
