2017 Ricardo Grande
85% Syrah, 10% Grenache, 4% Mouvedre, 1% Petite Sirah
An ode to Syrah, this large and mighty wine towers over all others with resounding notes of cherry, juicy black fruits, orange zest and chocolate that lead you to a savory, lingering finish.

"Inky ruby. A deeply perfumed bouquet evokes ripe cherry and cassis, with complicating suggestions of smoky oak, pipe tobacco, incense and cracked pepper. Broad and densely packed on the palate, offering lush, oak-spiced black and blue fruit preserve flavors that are given spine by a core of gentle acidity. Rich and decidedly generous in style, showing emphatic dark fruit and spice character on a long, youthfully tannic finish." - Josh Raynolds
