88% Syrah, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Graciano, 1% Viognier

Powerful aromas of violets, blueberries, sasparilla, Kalamata olive and wild mint exude from the glass. The midpalate is dripping with blackberry, hoisin, white pepper, Spanish chorizo and dark chocolate notes that evolve into a rich mouthfeel and stunningly long finish.
