The 2014 Christo Syrah, Grenache, Petite Sirah Blend is composed of 60% Syrah, 22% Petite Sirah, 14% Grenache and 4% Viognier, aged for 18 months in neutral barrels. Deep garnet-purple colored, the nose reveals lifted floral notes of fragrant violets over baked black cherries and raspberry preserves, plus Chinese five spice suggestions. Bold, buxom and full-bodied, the rich fruit is offset nicely by loads of freshness, supported by rounded tannins and finishing long.

The 2014 Christo, Marietta's Rhône blend, is bold, racy and juicy, all qualities that make it hard to resist. The Christo is the most exuberant and flamboyant of these reds. The blend is mostly Syrah, with some Petite Sirah, Grenache and Viognier. Sage, tobacco, menthol and licorice wrap around the juicy, exuberant finish.
