Blueberry, black cherry, spice and pepper fill the nose of this beautiful red blend. Its rich fruit flavors are complex and multi-layered. This plush wine has a lush texture and velvety tannins that will do well with grilled meats and vegetables.
The final blend was Syrah (57%), Counoise (22%), Pinot Noir (14%) and Marsanne (7%).
