39% Mourvèdre, 31% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Petite Sirah
Mourvèdre captures the lead of this enchanted blend, followed by Grenache, Syrah, and Petit Syrah. Dark fruit abounds, surrendering blueberry brush, blackberry glaze and fleshy plum. Qualities of caramelized bacon, smoky cinders, orange oil and briar spice are nestled by ultra fine tannin and juicy acidity. The finish is neatly knit with threads of wild raspberry, hazelnut coffee, cracked white pepper and the lightest wisp of mint sprig.
Picked throughout September and October, the grapes were fermented into 5-ton open top fermenters and pumped over multiple times per day to achieve maximum extraction. Aged for 22 months in French oak and American oak.During the last 12 months of barrel aging, the blending components were aged together in oak. During the first 10 months they were aged separately by variety.
