2014 Long Shadows Pirouette

Had our first Long Shadows wine tonight, the 2014 Pirouette. Interesting blend:
58% Cabernet Sauvignon
18% Petit Verdot
17% Merlot
7% Cabernet Franc
Didn't realize it was made by Philippe Melka, who made one of the best syrahs I've ever tasted.
Very different taste than any other wine I've had. Hard to describe. Quite fruit forward but not overbearing in any way. Smoke, graphite, purple plums, sweet cherries on the finish. Very nice but just barely worth the price.
