Very tasty blend of Pinot Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Sangiovese, and Viognier. Moderate alcohol and not overly oaky. I wish more wines from California were like this one...

Earth, heather, lavender, red fruit, among others. Nicely balanced, fruits tannins. Can't get over the feeling of walking through Bath and Bodyworks.

So glad to have hung on to a bottle of the IX for so long, especially when I found out from Sean that it was mostly Nebbiolo!

Loving this wine. Needs air to really get going, will be fun to see how it develops.
