What a lovely blend this is, with its rich fruit and exotic spices on the nose. On the palate, the lush fruit and spiciness are cushioned by easy tannins. Syrah provides a velvety feel, the Zinfandel delivers bright fruit and the Cabernet Sauvignon adds structure.

The final blend for the ’08 was 79% Syrah, 16% Zinfandel and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

92 points, “Editor’s Choice,” Wine Enthusiast (October 2011): “A beautiful wine that tastes much richer than you usually get for this price. Shows gorgeously ripe blackberry, cherry, currant, mocha, licorice, bacon and sandalwood flavors, wrapped into refined tannins and finishing long and spicy…”

This friendly red is great with “simple foods, like BBQ, hearty pasta and wood-fired pizza. Just 250 cases made.  Drink now or hold 8-10 years.
