A blend of Grenache and Syrah, the 2017 Ajoute John Sebastiano Vineyard Sans Soufre is a forward, straight up delicious effort loaded with notions of blue fruits, violets, ground pepper, and background meatiness. Nicely balanced, with ripe tannins and medium-bodied richness and depth, drink it over the coming 2-4 years.
