Pop and pour. This is a blend of 91% Syrah, 6% Mourvèdre and 3% Viognier. Inky purple in color. The nose is intense with with black raspberries, black olives, roasted herbs, dark chocolate and char. Full bodied. Great lush texture. Lots of black raspberry fruit with underlying charred earth. Some chocolate on the finish. Delicious. This is still young and will improve over the next five to seven years. It should drink well for ten to twelve after that. It drinks great on its own, with time this will work just as well with food. It worked well with Indian food.
