Letters to Europe comprises an even split of Grenache and Syrah and spends 19 months in 25% new French oak and concrete egg. Gorgeous medium ruby in the glass with a bluish rim, the nose pops with notes of black raspberry pie, blue plum, dusty country road, cinnamon stick, violets and black peppercorn. Flavors of wild blackberry, macerated blueberry, roasted pork shoulder and dried poultry herbs hit nicely on the palate and compete perfectly with the medium plus acidity, full body and present tannins. I also love the bit of tobacco leaf aftertaste that is delivered on the finish. A beautiful wine and highly recommended. Only five barrels produced.
