92% Syrah, 5% Roussanne, 3% Grenache

The dark and mysterious 2017 Syrah offers blackberry, nori, seared ribeye, and leather notes on the powerful nose. Flavors of dark chocolate, rolling tobacco, hoisin, and olallieberry provide a dense mouthfeel on the midpalate. The finish is both hedonistic yet refined — the perfect pairing for cool nights and hearty foods.
