This is a blend of 96% Serine (a Syrah clone) and 4% Viognier. Purple in color with ruby swirls, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is great with black raspberries, smoke and black pepper. Full bodied. Light tannins. On the palate, this is on the more elegant side of Cote Rotie. Nice black raspberry fruit with some char. Good finish. This is drinking well now and should drink well for another seven to ten years. It will work better with food. This would go well with pork chops.
