IWC 91 Pts - According to International Wine Cellar - Bright purple. Powerful, spice-accented scents of cassis, olive paste, violet and woodsmoke. At once rich and lively, offering sweet dark berry compote and peppery spice flavors, along with a smoky overtone and a hint of cola. Precise and sharply focused on the subtly tannic finish, leaving intense berry skin, bitter chocolate and black pepper notes in its wake.
Winemakers Notes - The aromas are classic Bien Nacido and classic cool climate Syrah, spicy, peppery, clove, nutmeg, dried raspberry and just enough of that thyme and sage character that comes from the stems.
