sisu is a Syrah dominant blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre.
Saturated ruby. Deeply perfumed aromas of ripe blue fruits, exotic spices and incense pick up a smoky mineral flourish with air. Palate-staining, appealingly sweet boysenberry, cherry-vanilla and spicecake flavors are complemented by an exotic floral pastille quality and a hint of spiciness. Rich but lively, showing impressive finishing clarity, dark-berry-driven persistence and smooth tannins that build slowly.

Finnish for, “patience, perseverance, and stamina”, this is a word that is used to describe the Finnish people. It’s considered a big compliment to tell a Finn that they have“sisu”.
