Intensity. The aroma matches the color with asphalt, fresh blackberries, and slate. This is the plushest wine to date with fig compote and crème-de-cassis. The exposure at 1500’ on Pritchard Hill smoothes the tannins into a cacao-like texture. A wide mid-palette gains momentum through the finish. Nuance of white pepper minerality holds together the tight core of this wine suggesting age-ability like other wines from this region. 95% Syrah, 5% Grenache. 150 cases.
