This dark crimson Rhône blend has an explosive nose of black cherry, boysenberry, Asian spice, vanilla and mocha. The rich palate serves up intense fruit with nuances of spice and oak and flavors of black cherry, raspberry, white pepper, dark chocolate, nutmeg and vanilla.
The final blend was 63% Syrah, 30% Grenache Noir and 7% Petite Sirah.
91 points, The Rhone Report, “New Releases from California” (Issue #10): “…rich, full notes of blackberry and darker styled fruits…full-bodied, supple, polished…”
90 points, Wine Enthusiast (April 2012): “So sweet and ripe in raspberry, cherry and white chocolate, it’s almost like a dessert wine. The sweetness nicely evaporates in a dry swirl of acids and minerals, leaving behind only the impression of honey and spice…”
“Recommended,” San Francisco Chronicle
It will pair deliciously with spicy black bean burgers, prime rib, roast chicken and vegetarian fare.
