This is a blend of 92% Syrah, 6% Mourvedre, and 2% Viognier. Inky purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is great with black raspberries, blueberries, black pepper, chocolate and roasted meat. Full bodied. Medium tannins. Nice acidity. On the palate, this is delicious. Lots of black raspberries with some blueberries over a bit of roasted meat (more char). Long finish. Drinking nicely if not fully mature. Drink over the next ten to fifteen years. Great on its own, this needs bigger food. It would work well with Prime Rib.
