Natalie's Score: 90/100

What a luxuriously mouth-filling wine! Fleshy black plums and berries tumble over your palate in a river of pleasure that keeps on going right through the finish. This is truly liquid plush. Syrah food pairings: prime rib, roast beef, grilled pork chops.

FERMENTATION
All fruit for this wine was hand harvested form the two separate blocks assuring
only the best quality. The fruit was gently de-stemmed and transferred to stainless steel tanks for whole berry fermentation. Manual punchdowns and machine pumpovers were conducted two to three times daily. After fermentation, the wine was transferred to a combination of new and second fill French and American oak barrels. After twelve months of aging, the wine was racked and blended into stainless steel tanks. Finally the wine was bottled in
February 2013.

WINE DESCRIPTION
This vintage is very characteristic of a cool-climate, Northern Rhone style red
with more delicate yet balanced flavour profile. Elegant on the nose with aromas
of blackberry, dark plum, violets and a touch of clove spice. On the palate, dark
fruit flavours of blackberry are complimented with a hint of smoke and white
pepper. Balanced acidity with medium weight will make this wine a very food
friendly choice.
