Wine Spectator 88 points - Burly, with personality to spare and no shortage of charred, toasty oak, plus notes of dark Asian spice, smoky herb and currant. Firm tannins frame the finish. Grenache, Petite Sirah and Syrah. Drink now through 2024. 28,000 cases made. -TF (Apr 15 2016)
Aromas of wild berry, floral scents, and caramelized oak are present immediately. Rich and layered, the wine has a commanding entry that leads to notes of blackberry, plum, mocha and spice. The mid-palate is wholly generous with requisite acidity to complement the exotic mix of flavors. It finishes with a clean purpose that is focused and refined.
