Deep scarlet red with shades of purple. Aromas of black cherry, hot cinnamon stick, slightly gamy with dried Herbs de Provence, dark chocolate nibs and rose petal. A voluptuous mouthfeel that is oozing with red and blue fruits and layered in silky mix of savory and sweet fruit plus minerality that carries the wine to a long finish. This wine is as sensual as they come and yes, it is Pure Yum!
This started as a chance to play with some Syrah and Grenache that did not quite fit into vineyard designate blends that I was making. The goal was to make a wine that just was Pure Yum. So I started tinkering, making some magic, and I fell in love with this blend. Then, wine writers fell in love with the blend, and most importantly you, our club members, tasting room guests, and fans alike did too. You love it so I'll make more.
