Ripe, fresh and juicy, with supple blackberry, wild berry and black cherry fruit that's spicy, balanced, complex and layered, ending with firm, integrated tannins. (JL)
The 2007 Ingenuity (another intriguing blend of 46% Grenache, 43% Syrah, and the rest Petite Sirah, Mourvedre, and Tempranillo) has a dense ruby purple color and a slightly more reserved, restrained style when compared to the exuberant Veracity. Much more delineation and minerality are present in this wine, which exhibits plenty of red and black fruit as well as note of graphite, crushed rock, and spring flowers. The sweetness of the tannin and the seamless, silky integration of all the component parts are impressive, and the wine is capable of drinking well for another 5-8 years. (RP)
Inky violet. Powerful scents of boysenberry, cassis, cracked pepper and fruitcake, with a subtle undertone of violet oil. Very spicy in the mouth, displaying deeply concentrated dark fruit preserve flavors and velvety texture. The floral note comes back on the finish, which is tightly focused for a big wine and very persistent. This is pretty primary today and would benefit from decanting or a few years in the cellar. (JR)
