Perfectionist

55% Syrah, 37% Grenache, 4% Mourvedre, 4% Graciano

A scent that speaks of granite cooled by a mountain stream, slate right after a cloudburst. Hints of black tea and sage, warmed by the summer sun and the mild salinity of an ocean breeze. All underpinned by round fruit flavors of blueberry and fig. While it is easy to become lost in the umami of smoked meats, iron minerality, and olive tapenade flavors, this wine carries itself with such a graceful elegance that those notes are seamlessly intertwined with huckleberry and plum. The tannins creep slowly, capturing you before you even realize they have appeared and then releasing into the complex flavors that rest in your mouth and nose long after your sip is over. Drink now through 2030.
