2017 New Routine
65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Syrah
Dark, almost impenetrable aromatics that remind us of nothing more than chocolate covered blueberries. There is also a potent grilled aspect, charred cedar or flame-seared jalapeño. This is consistent with the palate where the sultry smokiness of the Syrah is tempered by the fresh herbaciousness of the Cabernet. Oak and stems both add tannin and structure to the wine, as well as respective spiciness.
