« Innocence » is a nod to all the kids we hosted here at Topiary. Their looks are memorable, and Philippe, the owner and winemaker, made this blend with the same philosophy. The harmony between the Cab and the Syrah is very well done. The nose is smooth, with the fruity aromas of Syrah, and then when you drink it, the enjoyable taste of the Cab comes in to create a real innocent experience.
