|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
Aroma: A deep nose, marked equally by Mourvedre and Syrah: mocha and currant reduction, chalky minerality and spicy eucalyptus. Mouth Feel: The mouth is dense yet not heavy, with flavors of sugarplum and rare steak, a reverberating red/black licorice note, and tremendous texture. The long finish, with lingering flavors of wood smoke, roasted meat, plum skin and crushed rock, hints at more rewards to come with cellar aging.
Combines structure with polish and substance, offering expressive raspberry, garrigue and smoked spice flavors that build richness toward refined tannins. Mourvèdre, Grenache, Syrah and Counoise. Drink now through 2025. 3,225 cases made.
Exotic cherry aromas mix with mace and other rum-barrel spices on the nose of this blend of 46% Mourvèdre, 31% Syrah, 18% Grenache and 5% Counoise. There's a burst of red cherry and tart strawberry on the palate, which then settles into a smooth suave texture.
