Dineen and Red Willow 'Les Vins de Marcoux' supply the fruit for this complex, aromatic Syrah. A fecund melding of compost, chicken yard and chocolate accents surround a core of berries and cherries. Ripe, round and mouth-filling, it's not at all overpowering, but has the style and complexity to hold your interest through the entire bottle.
