This inviting proprietary blend of 55% Grenache, 39% Syrah and 8% Petite Sirah offers stunning aromatics with black raspberry, cranberry, Indian spices, and candied violet.  Seamless and energetic on the palate, offering red and dark berry flavors that expand within a frame of harmonious tannins finishing with tenacity and focus.  A lovely wine to drink now and watch as it develops in the glass, and it will certainly age gracefully for another decade.  Aged for 18 months in a combination of concrete and large format French oak barrels, 300L hogshead and 400L puncheons, of which 10% new.

Santa Lucia Clay Loam - This soil lends itself to brighter, oral aromatics and lower pH. Being a heavier soil it also lends itself to a rounder mouthfeel.
