76% Syrah, 13% Mourvedre and 11% Bobal, planted on chalky soil; aged in 85% French and 15% American oak that ranged from new to three years old) Bright purple. Spicy, highly fragrant nose features perfumed blackberry, violet and orange peel, with hints of smoke and black olive.  Really showing the Syrah now. Dense, sappy and chewy but surprisingly lithe; the intense red and dark berry and floral pastille flavors are at once taut and rich, thanks to zesty minerality. Finishes very suave and long, with fine-grained tannins and lingering spiciness.
