The 2018 Sisu is a blend of 52% Syrah, 24% Mourvè­dre and 24% Grenache. it has a pale ruby-pur­ple col­or and scents of rhubarb and blue­ber­ries with notes of aniseed, woodsmoke and tobac­co. The medi­um-bod­ied palate offers flo­ral and spicy accents that emerge with bursts of fresh acid­i­ty, and it fin­ish­es very long and fra­grant with amaro accents. So pret­ty! 95 pts
