(grenache, syrah) The head of this is complex -- tobacco, fig, pepper and floral. It combines to make an intoxicating aroma. The body is full and fruity and sweet, but not overdone.

Nose of sweet barnyard and a musk aroma. Mild acid on the attack that continues through the finish. In the mouth mild ripe sour and (pleasantly) bitter chewy blackberry, dark cherry, and plum with loam, herbs, and a hint of pepper. Finishes of leather, wood, and lingering spiced fruit and wood. Yum. Read More
Silken smooth mouthfeel. Sweet. Very sweet. Bite into a nice piece of dark chocolate. Then take a sip of this wine. Near wine-gasm. The heavy weight of the wine on your tongue is bliss when combined with the sensual nature of the berry fruity wine. Read More
