This is an unusual blend of Syrah (89%), Lagrein (5%), Petite Sirah (3%), Merlot (2%) and Grenache (1%).

Tri-tip is a great pairing, and heavy spicy foods. Hold up to 2020.

Truly amazing rich red wine. I love the finish, great balance, get it while you can. This one probably won't be available for long.        -20 Points

By far the smoothest best red in any price range we have tried, simply enjoyable.      -20 Points

If color can be lush and plush, a la Shelby's description of Pink as Blush and Bashful in Steel Magnolias, this would be the wine. Really sultry and inviting like a red velvet chaise lounge, definitely smelled dark red fruits, especially plum and blackberry. If it were a jam, I'd be putting it on my toast. This is definitely not a sipping wine. First tast didn't impress me, but was much better when I served it with spicy chicken shish-ka-bobs. The flavors in the wine and the food really came out. Finish also didn't impress with first sip, but with the meal, it was perfect. Actually, I thought it cleansed the palate after every bite. Very smooth and refreshing, much the way a sorbet between courses would work. Overall, I would give this wine 15-17 out of 20.            -16 Points
