The texture is immediately compelling, with firm tannins that frame that rich flavors of roasted berry, smoked meat and peppery spice, with a pinch of lavender. MATT KETTMANN

Moving to the Syrah-dominated releases, the 2017 Avenger is 70% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre, and 10% Grenache brought up in a mix of French and Hungarian oak.

Blackcurrants, mulberries, peppery spice, walnut shell, and chocolate notes all define the bouquet, and the Hungarian oak gives this a different aromatic style as well as texture. Balanced, with good acidity and fine tannins, you can drink it today or cellar bottles for 7-8 years.

Gutsy, yet refined and polished, with expressive black raspberry, peppered beef and grilled anise flavors that build tension toward fine-grained tannins. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2030. 600 cases...   Gutsy, yet refined and polished, with expressive black raspberry, peppered beef and grilled anise flavors that build tension toward fine-grained tannins.
