Kirkland vintner Bob Delf continues to focus this blend on Syrah (60%), but there also are significant contributions from Carménère and Petit Verdot, which help to make this a rather complex offering. Aromas of boysenberry, chocolate-covered blueberry include pinches of anise, horehound and green peppercorns along with leather. The drink is full and rich from start to finish with sweet black cherry and vanilla flavors and well-managed chocolaty tannins. These wines are available at their shared tasting room in Spokane at Nectar as well as Totem Square in Kirkland.
