Complex and distinctive blend of Syrah and Blaufrankisch
Dense with ripe red fruit yet still retaining freshness and precision. Full-bodied with earthy aromas of red berries and sour cherries. On the palate you get black cherries and plums, blueberries as a well Rhone-style Syrah’s meat and pepper character. With fine tannins and a clear, surprisingly tart finish.

Give it time in the glass and its distinctive complexity will unfold and captivate you.
