Blend of 62% Merlot, 20% Syrah, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 3% Cabernet Franc. The Merlot's plum and herb dominate the nose along with a touch of Syrah's classic tar, melded with a wisp of roasted coffee. Thyme and a hint of rosemary spiral around blueberry, black currant, and plum against a background and finish of cherry espresso with a splinter of cedar. With a little breathing time the herbs and tar evolve into a mellow black olive that integrates beautifully with the fruit. Helix Pomatia's blend of Bordeaux varietals and Syrah pair well with a diversity of meats - beef, pork, duck, sausage and even turkey.
