92 Points & Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast

Smooth, rich and a touch savory, this wine explodes with a delicious mix of red fruit and warm spice. Wild herbs and mulled plum layer a palate cradled by firm tannins and a full body.

Winemaker Notes

Cold soaked for 3-5 days. Grenache had 25% stem inclusion to add structure. After fermentation, the lots were pressed off and allowed to settle and then racked to barrel, remaining untouched during the entire aging process.

Ratings

Smooth, rich and a touch savory, this generous blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre offers warm scents of mulled plums, baking spices and milk chocolate that extend onto the palate, cradled by soft tannins and a full body. It's yummy, inviting and mouthfilling. Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast 5/1/2021
