A blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Merlot, this wine is deep ruby to the eye, with aromas of blackberry, forest floor, river rock and thyme. At first sip, the tannins come on strong, immediately followed by vibrant flavors of cherry, pomegranate, orange zest, anisette and oregano. To some palates, the tannins could be overpowering, but ample acidity and bright fruit flavors make the whole package work.
