sisu is a Syrah dominant blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre.
The 2017 Sisu is made up of 42% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 28% Mourvèdre aged 18 months in 50% new French oak. It has a medium ruby color and a nose of mint chocolate, chargrill, coffee and violet with fresh blackcurrant and boysenberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied and restrained, the fruits fine, fresh and juicy. It has a soft, silken frame with just enough defining grain and a long, layered finish. Lovely! 92+pts

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”.
