61% Syrah & 39% Mourvèdre
The Syrah based, entry-level cuvee is also flat out gorgeous. The 2014 Parabellum Rhone's deep ruby color is followed by classic aromas of peppery herbs, dark berry fruits and hints of minerality, full-bodied richness, gorgeous purity and a fresh, focused, lively texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. Like with the Parabellum Bordeaux cuvee, there's slightly less density than the Estate Syrah, yet it's impeccably made and will evolve gracefully.

This wine is 61% Syrah and 39% Mourvèdre. Appealing aromas of red and black fruit, mineral, spice, earth and braised meat lead to a full bodied, still quite tightly wound palate. All the stuffing is there but it needs some additional time in bottle or a short decant to open up. (Sept 1, 2017)
