Dusty black violet color. Aromas and flavors of ripe berry melange and pie crusts with a velvety, fruity medium-full body and a smooth, complex, long finish with touches of chocolate genache, cured meats, salted caramel, and violet with moderate oak flavor. A delightful red that’s bursting at the seams with ripe fruit and meaty Syrah; will be well-loved.
