This wine opens with mellow notes of orange peel and allspice. Swirl the glass for a moment, and you will start to uncover a hint of camphor and smoky pine resin. The palate is big and round, opening with fat dollops of juicy purple fruit. Take a moment, and you will find the palate opens on characters of cola and black pepper, underscored by a mild savory flavor of warm confit. Pause to consider the mouthfeel, gentle, rich with supple tannins that underscore the luxurious nature of this wine. The finish is long and decadent, recalling the deep fruit flavors from the early palate, along with the barest hint of black tea and vanilla.

Composed of 53% Grenache, 17% Syrah, 13% Mourvèdre, 16% Petite Sirah and 1% Viognier, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cuvee Alis Estate Vineyard has quite a broody nose of coffee grounds, tilled soil and truffles over a core of preserved plums, blackberry pie and chocolate box with a touch of incense. Full-bodied, rich and opulent in the mouth, it displays tons of exotic spice and berry preserves layers with fantastic freshness, finishing long and spicy.

The medium ruby-colored 2015 Cuvée Alis checks in as a blend of 53% Grenache, 17% Syrah, 16% Petite Sirah, 13% Mourvèdre, and 1% Viognier. Blackberries, baked cherries, earth and graphite aromas, medium body, ripe tannin, and solid length all make for a charming, enjoyable, well-made blend that should keep for 7-8 years.
