Winemaker Bill Nachbaur & Clay Mauritson Notes
Deep vine-ripened blackberry aroma meld with toasty oak, a rich spiciness and perfumey floral notes. The smooth entry reveals juicy blackberry, ripe cherry, spicy pepper, and creamy mocha. Hints of blueberry, tobacco, and a touch of cocoa enhance the finish as the flavors linger on. A solid structure offers slightly chewy tannins that will further integrate with aging.

This robust Syrah pairs well with roasted meats, hearty tomato-based dishes, or a comforting stew of cassoulet.
