(56% syrah, 26% grenache, 11% mourvedre and 7% tempranillo; 16.1% alcohol): Inky purple. Spice-accented cherry and dark berry aromas are complicated by black tea, licorice and potpourri. Juicy, incisive blackberry and boysenberry flavors are braced by zesty acidity and pick up a touch of candied violet with air. Oak spice and floral notes emerge on the sweet, focused, gently tannic finish. For a rich, ripe wine this is pretty suave.
