The beautiful fruit flavors of Grenache and the fighting spirit of savory Syrah creates a delicious wine to enjoy every day. With deep and dark aromas of blackberry, black cherry, plum and cola create an enticing nose. Bold flavors of plum, boysenberry, blackberry, with a stout core expressing dark chocolate, leather, meat, and licorice. The finish is firm with long lasting tannins.
Full-bodied, confident, sophisticated, strong.

The grapes for this savory and bold blend were hand harvested, hand sorted, and destemmed at the winery. After a 48-hour cold soak, whole berries were fermented using native yeast for two weeks. Caps were punched down by hand twice a day. After a delicate pressing, the wine was aged in neutral French barrels for 8 months to preserve the bold and savory flavors.
