Jammy blackberry, black cherry, cassis. Nice spicy finish. A touch of vanilla and coconut from American oak at first sniff. Sweet spices throughout.

Best wine in the joint (with the possible exception of Monte Bello). Old vine Grenache blends harmoniously with the Syrah from this warmer spot in Dry Creek. Huge berry nose; beautiful mix of fruit and earth on the seamless palate; the finish lengthy.

Really lovely. What I enjoy from both varieties. Spice/fruit/appealing oak. Still a little tannic and young but quite tasty. Opening up into a wonderful wine. Enjoy this producer.
