Varietal: Syrah, Mourvedre, Viognier

Nose: Intense, dark, and brooding with an abundance of black fruit
aromas and scents of violets, pepper and cured meat with gentle whiffs of
dried coriander and tar, savoury, gamey aromas and dark berries.
Palate: Flavours of liquorice, black olives, and cardamom and hints of cranberry, red currant and cloves. The mid-palate is full, rich and smooth with supple tannins and integrated acidity and shows sweet tobacco and spicy undertones from subtle oaking. The wine lingers in the mouth with a smoky, slightly charry, yet very juicy finish.
