Boasting a deep, saturated color and intense bouquet of black cherry, cola, mocha, and vanilla oak, the palate explodes with rich, concentrated flavors of blackberry, boysenberry and cassis layered upon exotic notes of anise and minerals that build and broaden on a long, spicy finish. This wine offers just the right amount of polish and flair to make it a true beauty.
The final blend was 54% Syrah and 46% Cabernet Sauvignon.
95 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (July 2012): “...While never a wine that goes over the top, so too is this deeply drafted effort not a bottling that relies on restraint and limited intensity. Luscious at every stop, it smells and tastes of currants, black cherries, black pepper and caramelized vanilla, is full and nicely mouthfilling on the palate..."
93 points, Wine Spectator (Nov. 2012) “Ripe, layered and structured, with floral scents to the pure dark berry, spice and cedar notes, ending with a measure of elegance and grace amid fine-grained, minerally tannins.”
