2016 Nocturne – $32

2016 Nocturne

71% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre, and 9% Carignane – The nose is smoky and complex with plenty of dark fruit and just a hint of toasted oak. The palate is smooth and luscious with deep fruit, cloves, and chocolate. The ancient vine Carignane gives this wine a strong backbone and lingering finish without the need for excessive oak.
