Couldn’t tell if it was a Syrah or a Cab..turns out it’s a blend of both!

Big monster perfect for the mountains... Awesome black and blue bomb that toes the overblown line but never steps over it... always dependable and crowd pleasing

Might have been best out of the batch. Bit soft in the mid palate compared to heavier Syrah, less cab wines.
