This is their basic bottling (not vineyard designated) and is a tremendous value. It is a warmer climate styled Syrah but not over the top. Sporting a newly revised label and under new ownership, this wine is every bit as good as those released by Craig Jaffurs. Inky purple in color. The nose has black raspberries, slight black pepper and roasted meats. On the palate, this has a nice juicy acidity. Delicious black raspberry fruit. Nice depth although still young with medium tannins. Nice finish. This is a gulpable wine that goes down quite easily. It will work with bigger and or spicy foods.
