This Syrah based blend was born during our blending trials, as we experimented with softening the burly Syrah by adding a little Grenache and Mourvédre. The resulting blend has become one of our most coveted wines, finding a nice balance between the 1861 Grenache based blend and our Estate Syrah.

Tasting Notes
90 Points Wine&Spirits Magazine | "As a young wine it’s a big bruiser, focused [...] black-skinned fruit, with notes of chocolate, anise and black pepper trailing those tannins in the end. Brisk, tough and powerful, this is a mouth-filling red to decant for slow-braised short ribs"
