This blend of 57% grenache, 35% syrah and 8% petite sirah offers tones of blackberry, dark cherry, and caramelized blood orange peel alongside more savory notes of herbs de Provence, all spice, and hints of Worcestershire on roasted beef. The palate is plush and broad with its backbone coming from the use of partial whole cluster fermentation, which provides freshness to this powerful offering. Aged for 18 months in 100% French oak (roughly 30% new) in larger format 300L hogshead and 400L puncheons.
