This exceptional Rhône-influenced blend was crafted to translate the efforts and spirit of experimentation. A black-garnet hue precludes intense aromas of black plum, blueberry, exotic spices, and rich cocoa. Flavors of spiced berry are punctuated by velvety textures through a mouthful of complexities.
85% Syrah, 11% Carignane, 4% Viognier
Each detail from exact pick dates and locations, to experimenting with new fermentation techniques and the use of Artisan coopered barrels during storage are considered to craft this blend. Syrah and viognier are hand-picked together, fermented and barrel-aged as a Cote Rotie style before carefully blending a touch of carignane. 30% new French oak barrel aging for 30 months.
