This classic offering combines Petite Sirah with Carignane, Grenache, Syrah, Peloursin and Mourvèdre. Truffled earth and black pepper give it a savory edge that's completely inviting, while the mouthfeel remains soft despite the powerful tannins. Enjoyable now, it should disclose a depth of complexity over time; cellar through 2021.
