75% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache
Elevage: 100% de-stemmed fruit from Booker Vineyard, basket pressed and racked once off gross lees. Aged 18 months in 50% new French Barriques.
Color: Ron Burgundy
Aromatics: An incredibly sexy offering with upfront notes of cocoa, blueberries, black licorice and violets.
Palate: The mouth fills out with more chocolate, cherry cola and just a hint of black pepper and tar. The finish is both velvety and lush, keeping you coming back for more.
