Five distinctive varietals were chosen for this blend. After harvest and delivery to the crush pad, the grapes were sent to separate tanks for a cold soak to develop optimal color and flavor. The Syrah and Mourvedre fermented in open top tanks while the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot went to closed-top tanks. Destined for this blend, the small percentage of Malbec co-fermented with some of the Cabernet Sauvignon before all varietals were aged in French oak barrels and masterfully blended for taste and balance before bottling.
A luscious and vibrant blend of rich red varietals, this wine offers enticing aromas of dark berries with a touch of wild herbs and a hint of toast. Layered flavors of raspberry, dark cherry, roasted plum, black olive and savory spices merge for a balanced, quenching wine with a long, silky finish.
