Fusion Wine Details
Price: $32.00 per bottle

Description: This may be our best effort yet! This dark and brooding blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petite Verdot is a very distinguished, rich and powerful wine. This unique blend has resulted in a symphony of berry and black cherry with well integrated tannins and balanced acidity. Twenty months of oak aging has given this wine notes of butterscotch and vanilla.

Varietal Definition
Syrah is the eight hundred pound gorilla of Rhone grapes! In the vineyard and the winery, Syrah is typically an easy grape to work with - healthy, early ripening, resistant to mildew and rot; suitable for winemaking in a variety of styles. The wines from Syrah are tannic without being harsh. The wines will have a taste and smell of dark blue fruit like blackberries and blackcurrant, with a strong spicy side where one can find freshly ground pepper and other spices. Syrah is famous for its part in the French blends, such as Côtes du Rhone and Châteauneuf du Pape.
Petit Verdot:
Petite Verdot is one of the five noble Bordeaux varietals, essentially acting as the nuts and bolts in most Bordeaux blends. With intense color and racy flavors, this wine possesses elements of pencil shavings, dark fruit presentation and a subtle complexity, which can be appreciated by even the most discerning palate.
