Founding winemaker Mike Seal leans into Rhône for this four-barrel blend of Syrah (50%) and Petite Sirah (25%) that’s given some framework from Cabernet Sauvignon (25%). Prominent hints of plum, fig and black currant pick up spice box dust along the way to the juicy midpalate that’s capped by café mocha, creating a long finish that gives it a wow factor. Award: Savor NW (double gold).
