"...one of the more opulent wines in the lineup. Blackberry jam, lavender, spice, licorice, new oak and chocolate are all kicked up. There's terrific depth to the 2018, but also a good bit of energy, too." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
"...a bold wine, starting with smoky layers of baked blackberry, tar and charcuterie. The rich palate shows a touch of fig and raisin, with salted caramel and light pepper spices." ~ Wine Enthusiast
"The 2018 Syrah - Cabernet Sauvignon is slightly Syrah-dominated and is a 60/40 split of Syrah and Cabernet. It has some classic Cabernet cassis, tobacco, and lead pencil notes as well as more peppery, herbal background nuances. Medium-bodied, nicely textured, and with a kiss of detracting vanilla oak, it's going to shine for 4-6 years or so." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
A rich, full-bodied wine that features the classic depth and structure of Cabernet Sauvignon balanced by Syrah's notoriously jammy, more fruit-forward flavors. This wine offers savory aromas of dark berries, cassis, baking spices and vanilla that intermingle with earthy notes of dried tobacco, cigar box and saddle leather. Black currant and other dark fruit flavors linger on the palate, supported by hints of dark chocolate, vanilla and earth.
This bold blend will stand up beautifully to richly seasoned meats and herbaceous savory dishes. Try it with a rosemary & garlic spiced rack of lamb or a spice-rubbed grilled steak.
