    Winemaker's Notes:

    This blend opens initially with powerful aromas of sweet, ripe black berries, jammy wild berries, wilted rose, notes of mocha, dark chocolate and toasty undertones. The aromas evolve with air and patience, bringing to the forefront subtle, sweet, floral notes and a rich cherry scent. This wines flavor echoes the aromas displaying ripe, juicy, vibrant wild berry and blackberries that are intense and concentrated and saturate the palate. The tannins are soft and coat the mouth, while the fruit flavors lend a pleasant sweetness. The finish is long and persistent with wonderful dark berry and earth notes that carry on. Enjoy!

    Blend: 88% Syrah, 8% Petite Sirah, 4% Viognier

    Critical Acclaim:

    Wattle Creek’s best Triple Play ever. A blend of Syrah, Viognier and Petite Sirah from this cool appellation in Mendocino County, the wine is dry, medium- to full-bodied, tannic and complex, with flavors of blackberries, currants, tobacco, smoked meat, cedar and scads of black pepper. Drink now for its sheer power and joy.

    The wine is a pleasant ruby color in the glass, and the nose exhibits notes of ripe red fruit, spicy pepper and a hint of mint over some very subtle oak. The taste is somewhat fruit forward, with a bit of blackberry jam on the outset, which transitions to some fresh herbs and mint midpalate. The tannins are very well structured, leading to a firm, dry finish that would complement a wide variety of grilled meats and savory dishes.
