Inky garnet in color, brilliant aromatics of ripe blue fruits, allspice and white pepper emanate from the glass. In the background, floral notes of lavender and violets intermingle with deeper components of prosciutto, buttered mushrooms and soy. The palate impression is tender and polished with a firm presence finishing with significant weight and focus.

This is an awesome expression of cool climate Syrah, with rosemary-crusted lamb chops, peppercorns, asphalt and elderberry-jam aromas starting the show. The palate is intense with cracked pepper, bay leaf, rosemary oil and sage, which play against riper black-fruit tones and elegant lavender flavors.

Generous yet refined, with vibrant blackberry, mint and smoky meat and pepper flavors that build momentum and depth toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2024.
