San Francisco Wine Panel Score 91+ Points
On the elegant side for a California Rhone grape blend this food-friendly bottling harmonizes aromas of red raspberry, pomegranate, dark plum, black peppercorn, black tea, bouillon and crushed rock. It is sleek, dry and slightly minerally on the palate, where flavors of red raspberry, strawberry, dark plum, peppercorn, cardamom, tea and sandalwood create an elegant, lingering medley. It will be tasty with a wide variety of foods. A blend of 52% Grenache, 23% Carignane, 20% Syrah & 5% Mourvedre. 840 cases produced.
