Rhone Style Blend - Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Petite Sirah, Merlot

"Vibrant and zesty, with medium-bodied wild berry, toasted spice and licorice flavors that finish with vibrant tannins. Syrah, Grenache, Petite Sirah, Merlot and Mourvedre. Drink now through 2026. 6,700 cases made. -TF" (WS)

"Dense blackberry, black plum, oak and coconut husk show on the nose of this blend. There is dense blackberry fruit and dried herbs on the palate, whose medium-bodied mouthfeel leads into a coffee finish. -Matt Kettmann" (WE)

"A blend of syrah, grenache and mourvedre, with dollops of merlot and petite sirah, this is a dark beast of a wine. A sumptuous oak element drives the rich red-fruit flavors, integrating with air to create a generous and forceful red. For roast beef." (W&S)

Winery Notes:
Dark cherry, white pepper and spring floral aromas blend with dense blackberry flavors, sweet tannins and a juicy finish.
