Natalie's Score: 93/100

Wowzers! This wine is a show-stopper: gorgeous depth and length with everything lovely in between. Athene (pronounced A-Thee-Nee) offers dedicated hedonists dark smoky cassis and blackberries with luscious layers of mouth-filling, full-bodied texture. This wine is a blend of Syrah (53%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (47%) that's been aged 14 months in oak. A cellar keeper for sure, but only if you have the discipline to wait.

Food pairings: filet mignon.

This is the first new wine to be added to Burrowing Owl's award winning line up in 8 years. The name chosen for this blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, comes from the biological genus - Athene - to which the burrowing owl belongs.(Athene Cunicularia)
