Paso Robles, California

A small amount of Petite Sirah and Zinfandel are added to the Syrah used in this blend. Because much of the fruit was grown on south-facing slopes, the resulting wine boasts riper, more concentrated fruit flavors. Featuring aromas of blueberry, black tea and brown sugar complemented by flavors of blackberry and dark chocolate, this complex wine can be enjoyed now or uncorked in five years time.
