2015 "Tryst" Syrah/Grenache Blend

Tryst reads like a Robert Mitchum film noir title:

"I knew from the moment I laid eyes on her we were meant to get together. Lost souls from different backgrounds, yet somehow fated to cross paths.

I flipped the ignition switch and headed straight from Sonoma down the 101, never once looking back. The closer I got to Paso, the cool evening air fueled my desire.

Two hearts would soon beat as one."

And that is the Tryst. A merger between classic grape noir: Syrah and Grenache.
