Three big Syrahs come together to form the major components of this wine. They are followed by a generous helping of Grenache that give this wine a structure that will make it enjoyable for many years to come. At bottling we are so very glad these Syrah growers have nurtured these grapes to perfection. A formidable Southern Rhône character of earth and floral notes gives way to berries and chocolate over time....
