The Syrah contributes sweet, ripe blackberry/bramble aromas with hints of mocha. The Monastrell offers ripe, dried fruits (figs, raisins), spice and soft tannins.
Shiraz underpins the Sarah’s Blend style. It provides the opulent aromatics and sweet fruited flavors. Monastrell contributes rich, solid tannin structure, which creates the framework of the blend. One gushes, the other supports.
"This dark purple blend has notes of smoke, earth, spice box, and assorted black fruits lead to a full-bodied, complex, rich wine with loads of ripe fruit with a long smooth finish."
|Syrah and Monastrell from 20-40 year old vines planted in sandy loam and limestone soils was fermented in stainless steel and aged for 12 months in neutral French and American oak.
