An intriguing wine that displays intense aromas characteristic of Rocks District fruit. The Syrah lends a velvety mouthfeel while the Grenache adds berry flavors and a hint of spice to this nicely structured wine. The expressive palate bursts with dark fruits, plum, cacao, and distinct floral and meaty notes, followed by a supremely enjoyable finish. Warning: this wine is addictive!
