...rocking Syrah notes of blackberries, ground pepper, smoked meat, and roasted meat, full-bodied richness, remarkable purity, and silky yet present tannins...pleasure-bent, sexy, yet pure, balanced Syrah...
...lush with concentrated blackberry, black currant, charred wood and a hint of coffee on the nose. On the palate, firm yet polished tannins uphold dense flavors of black cherry, roasted black currant and plum, cola, espresso bean and cracked pepper. Acid washes into the finish.
Ripe black and blue fruits, candied licorice, espresso, violet, woodsmoke and vanilla on the powerful, spice-accented nose. Broad and fleshy but surprisingly lively as well, offering concentrated cassis, cherry-vanilla, blackberry and fruitcake flavors and a hint of smoked meat. Finishes very long and spicy, with steadily building tannins and resonating blue fruit and vanilla notes.
