Quivira Elusive

Disclaimer: I paid for this so I might want more/less from it

Tonight’s pick for pizza pairing was a Quivira Syrah blend called Elusive.  An exciting nose of strawberry, grape jelly, and a hint of cinnamon.  On the palate fruit then what I call oregano, leather, and finally earth for a dry finish with soft tannins.  For the $28 price point I would say worth it.  I should mention this is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mouvedre, and Petite Syrah where the first three varietals dominate the blend and are very typical of a Rhone blend.  Petite Syrah, however, is not a usually found in the Rhone though.
