Left their mailing long ago, and this 15,9 by vol blend confirms my decision. Leather and partially dried fruit, toasty oak and pruney finish. Alcohol shines they, of course, but considering, not THAT much. But the overall feeling is cloying, short and simple, even though I get their ambitions.

Rich, big Syrah with 12% Mourvèdre. Stewed cherries with a hint of white pepper and river stones. High octane at 15.8% - glad I sat on this a while.

Decanted an hour and it could have used 2-3. Very nicely crafted wine filled with savory and meaty elements. A bit hot at 15+ ABV.
