Impressive aromas of roasted cocoa, cappuccino charred beef and cassis rise to the fore on the nose of this blend of 40% Grenache, 36% Mourvèdre and 24% Syrah. The palate pops with bright blackberry and black-cherry flavors, framed by a gravelly tannic tension and seasoned with hints of fennel and beef jerky. The finish is quite long. MATT KETTMANN

Winemaker Notes

A beautiful garnet color, the 2016 Azimuth is a powerful wine showcasing the best of all three varieties. It has expressive red fruit from Grenache, earthy rustic characters from Mourvèdre and powerful dark fruit tones from Syrah. The wine is a textural, expressive powerhouse with a long lingering finish.
