Red summer berry fruits dominate the nose with delicate perfumes of potpourri providing additional aromatic lift.  Additional spice and interest come from the fruit components of Syrah and Pinot Noir.  Dry on the palate but with a pleasing texture from small amounts of fruit acidity and tannin.  Drink over the next year.

Serve lightly chilled
