Blend of Syrah and Mourvedre. Medium deep opaque purple color with dark red rim. Initial aromas redolent of blackberry and blueberry with underlying hints of red fruits give way to pleasing complex elements of vanilla and toffee. Soft, big, yet elegant mouth feel, rich, full body, density, superb balance and grip, lead to long, long finish, carrying intense ripe fruit and complex flavors. Wine was aged in Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon barrels which adds smokiness and complexity. Soft, supple, dramatic, sexy wine with a compelling yummy factor that screams “drink me.”
Food Pairing: hamburgers and pizza to short ribs, veal, pork, lamb, sausage, game and other meats, especially grilled meats. The perfect wine for your next barbecue!
