I wonder what flavor profiles the Viognier adds to the syrah. Seems like an interesting combo.
That's becoming a fairly standard combo. Cote Rotie does it, El Jefe makes Sir Ron Yeah, and a bunch of other CA and Aus wineries do it, and even the newest Cyberpub Blend is doing it. The Viognier tends to add a floral aroma to it while also helping deepen the pigment of the wine through co-pigmentation (assuming it's co-fermented with the Syrah).
