WSI93+ A complex cornucopia of dark brooding black fruit, blueberry and baking spice aromas. Subtle nuances of delicate floral and pink peppercorns interlaced with ripe red summer fruit, savory herbs, meaty bacon, and hints of wet red clay. Bold and expressive, showing toasted Italian bread, chocolate covered strawberries and a pinch of Espelette pepper. The Rhône grape varietals of Grenache and Syrah, when partnered with the Malbec, offer both old world and new world character. Flavors quickly evolve from black cherry to fresh mint, vanilla and baking spice before returning to its dark raspberry core. The finish is youthful with silky tannin and mouth-watering acidity. Ready to drink upon release yet worthy of some cellar time. 32% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Grenache, 12% Syrah, 4% Viognier (co-fermented with the Syrah), 2% Mourvedre. Fermented in 100% French oak.
