Tasting notes
A polished and approachable Syrah with layers of aromas and flavors. The wine has a dark purple hue. Aromas of plum and black cherry were enhanced by 14% carbonic maceration, contributing blueberry, blackberry, cherry and violet nuances, all framed by vanillin oak. Loads of rich, dark fruit flavors fill the palate and carry through a long finish displaying firm well-integrated tannins

This estate wine is designed to be approachable, yet have a sense of complexity and richness, allowing for development with bottle age.
