60% Syrah, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 19% Petit Verdot

"Bottled mid-March 2017 and a blend of 60% Syrah, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Optimus has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of crushed black currants, black cherries and black raspberries with hints of violets, dark chocolate, baking spices and black pepper. Full-bodied and with a lovely intensity of vibrant black fruit, it has an approachable frame of rounded tannins and lively acid, finishing long and spicy." (WA)

"The entry level cuvée is the 2015 Optimus and in 2015 it’s a blend of 60% Syrah, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Petit Verdot. It’s a pretty, elegant version of this cuvée that reveals a deep ruby color, notes of black raspberries, blackberries, violets, and leafy herbs, medium to full-bodied richness and a seamless, silky texture. Drink it over the coming 5-7 years." (JD)
