Rhone-style blend, strong on the Syrah, explodes on the nose with a blast of raspberry and crisp beef fat. Savory and juicy on the palate, raspberry, crisp fat, pencil lead, and thyme knit smoothly together. Firm tannins and bright acidity call for crispy pork belly. Highly Recommended. 91 points. DBH
