2017 AZIMUTH
48% Mourvèdre, 35% Syrah, 17% Grenache

2017 AZIMUTH

Provocative and alluring, the 2017 checks back in as Mourvèdre dominant with Syrah and Grenache playing the supporting role.

Wine critic, Jeb Dunnuck says, "Medium to full-bodied, ripe, and polished on the palate (especially given the high Mourvèdre content), it has complex, spicy notes of red and black fruits, underbrush, and cured meats. It has loads of character and is capable of lasting for a decade." 92 Points

Wine critic, Josh Raynolds of VINOUS says, "Opaque ruby. Spicy red and blue fruits, succulent flowers, musky earth and smoky minerals on the powerfully scented nose. Juicy and expansive in the mouth, offering vibrant boysenberry and raspberry flavors that pick up a spicy note on the back half. The floral note comes back strong on a chewy, smoke- and spice-tinged finish that shows outstanding persistence and lingering blue fruit character." 93 Points
