30% Cab. Sauv. 29% Syrah, 23% Grenache, 18% Petit Verdot $75
This intrinsic wine continues to be a perpetual head turner for all that cross its path. The amalgam of Rhone and Bordeaux varietals is stylishly complex, creating an abundant nose of red berries, supported by notes of cassis and floral notes. This leads to an encore of eucalyptus, dark chocolate and black tea leaves. At roughly 60% new French oak for 22 months, this wine is a perfect marriage of fresh mouth feel and integrated grippy tannins, that allows you to enjoy it now, or watch its progression over the next 15 years.
