Nose

On the nose, you’ll find all the umami notes of our Syrah, but with added earthiness and red cherry.

Palate

On the palate, it pulls from our Cabernet Sauvignon—notes of graphite, tobacco spice, and leather. Finally, a finish reminiscent of our Malbec, velvety tannins that taste of a light cocoa dusting. Make no mistake, this is a big and powerful wine. As the tannins soften over time, this wine will give way to a bright acidity that will keep it a lively and enticing wine for at least a decade.

Growing Conditions
