This full-bodied Syrah shows robust and spicy aromas of blackberry, black cherry, violets, black peppercorn, herbes de Provence, anise, and allspice berry. These notes extend into the palate finishing with a mouth-filling, savory richness.
Blend: 82% Syrah, 16% Grenache, 2% Mourvèdre
Spry and zesty, with medium-bodied raspberry, smoky herb and pepper flavors that build richness toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2029.

As always, this wine includes healthy amounts of Grenache (16%) and Mourvèdre (2%). The aromas are chock-full of blue fruit, with red fruit and dried herb accents. Center focused like many wines from this vintage, it's rich and has freshness and purity. There's a lot enjoyment to be had.

The 2019 Syrah (there's 16% Grenache and 2% Mourvèdre) sports a deep purple hue to go with classic Syrah notes of darker berry fruits, peppery herbs, violets, leather, and spice. It's nicely balanced, medium to full-bodied, has ripe tannins, and is unquestionably an outstanding wine. It will shine for 7-8 years. Best After 2022
