The sophisticated southern Rhône-style blend includes Viognier, Grenache and Mourvèdre, sourced from vineyards in Walla Walla, Yakima Valley, and the Horse Heaven Hills. It's smooth and sexy, with a satiny presence in the mouth. The purple plum and berry fruit flavors are matched to lightly grainy tannins, with streaks of cocoa and earth.
