This delicious Napa Valley Syrah starts off with fragrances of black raspberry, yellow peach and pancetta, plus a rush of lavender, licorice and violets. At its flavorful core is boysenberry fruit generously laced with sweet oak and vanilla spice. The finish is just sheer pleasure.

94 points, Wine Spectator (2/29/12): “Intense and distinctive for its meaty, gamey, spice and fresh earth character, trim yet rich, with a  lively, vibrant pace as the flavors unfold; full-bodied, yet ending with a mix of subtle fruit, mineral and spice notes that glide on. Drink now through 2022.”

Pair with grilled black pepper steak, venison, roasted squab, roast pork, hearty pasta dishes, pizza or Portabella burgers.
