Greg Harrington channels Provence in this bracing single-vineyard blend of cinsault, grenache and syrah. A pale onion-skin hue, the wine spent four months on the lees, lending it a nutty and biscuity complexity and breadth. With a sharp cut of acidity, it holds an impressive tension, even after two days open. Pour this with a light meal, like gravlax with capers on a fresh baguette. (500 cases)
