Shy floral and cherry aromas, with flavors that overlay blackberry with white flowers. Strange in a syrah, this combination would work well with aromatic food like lamb curry. Reminded me of a syrah-viognier blend.

The 2005, our fourth vintage, is dark and spicy with a nice Shiraz smokiness and hints of vanilla, black currant, eucalyptus, and chocolate that last through the long, ripe finish. This wine is round and complete with just enough tannin to successfully pair with a good, hearty meal. This is a wine I am going to enjoy drinking and sharing with friends down under and up top. - Joel Peterson

Tasting Notes:

87% Syrah, 5% Grenache, 5% Carignane, 3% Viognier A lovely shade of purple with a reddish hue is the inviting introduction to the complex, smoky, jammy, red current, and boysenberry scents, which are classic for the Syrah grape variety. The flavors are brightened and enhanced by small additions of Mourvèdre and Grenache, which add a fresh, bright quality with hints of white pepper, anise, and cloves. The Viognier is a white grape co-fermented with the Syrah and adds an ethereal, slightly floral perfume to the already complex bouquet. Traces of spicy French oak linger in the finish of this Rhône-style wine.
