"The dominant percentage of Grenache expresses itself on the nose with bright bing cherries, while the other varietals come through as notes of earthy black fruit and hints of roasted herbs. On the palate the wine is lively and palate coating with nice fine grained, chewy tannins. Red fruits take front and center at first, then give way to more black fruit and crushed rocks. The finish is long and mouthwatering. With air, sweet smelling crushed flowers and mulberry emerge on the nose. The moderate alcohol level and good acidity make this a great food wine and one that is likely to age exceptionally well, however, it is very approachable."

"Light in the glass, this blend of 52% Grenache, 23% Carignan, 20% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre combines grapes from the Santa Cruz and Gabilan mountains. Aromas of pomegranate, red currant and light herb lead into a tense palate of roasted cherry and fennel pollen." -MK, 11/1/2020
