(From 2009 Vintage) Sweet black currants, spices, violets, asphalt and grilled herbs all take shape in this mid-weight, yet luscious red. This is a decidedly refined, plush Petite Syrah with lovely balance, but little of the weight or firmness usually associated with the grape, which can be good or bad, depending on one’s point of view. T-bones, rib-eyes and burgers pair great with this wine! The bold body of the red meat combined with the charcoal flavors bridge to the wine's oak and tannin.
