SKU 1365



Winery Notes:

Medium-dark to dark ruby-purple. A highly perfumed bouquet of smoked meats, mulberry, black olive, and spring flowers. I could sniff this all day! On the palate, medium-full bodied with flavors of black fruits, earth, and savory spice. Finishes quite long with authoritative but polished tannins. I love this wine now for the aromatic fireworks but believe its best lies ahead. Enjoy from 2023 to 2033.

VinousThe 2016 Integral is 55% Syrah and 45% Mourvèdre. Vinification with 100% whole clusters of the Mourvèdre adds striking aromatic top notes. Rose petal, sage, mint and raspberry notes show terrific raciness in this flavorful, mid-weight red. The Integral is another arresting wine from Mike Officer.

Wine Advocate Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 The Integral, a blend of 55% Syrah and 45% Mourvèdre, opens with a stunning perfume of violets and roses over a core of crushed black plums and black cherries with a waft of black pepper. The palate is very big, concentrated and full-bodied with firm, rounded tannins and a refreshing lift, finishing very long and very perfumed. 519 cases produced.
