Reviews

 

A blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache, this full-bodied red wine offsets Syrah’s peppery, vivacious character with the rounded silkiness of Grenache. Mulberry and blackberry flavors are crisply concentrated, but the palate feels creamy and supple. The finish marked by fine, silky tannins. Already drinks well but should improve through 2025 and hold a few years further ~93 Wine Enthusiast
