On the nose, hints of lavender, graham cracker, pie crust and wild blackberry. As the wine opens up, flavors of blueberry, anise and black cherry come forth. On the palate the wine is bright, but not too tight. An explosive entry and a plush finish make this wine perfect for early term drinking. While very much in line with the complex Syrahs in our range, this wine is the gateway to our Rhone wines. Softer, friendlier yet elegant and vivacious.
