Intense aromas of blackcurrants, spices and black licorice with some lavender and rosemary...full-bodied and layered with chewy, polished tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Black pepper comes through...tensioned and structured. Nicely proportioned.
...blackberry, some black olive, rum cake, crème de cassis or chocolate-covered cherries...varietally pure... The tannins are more gripping...the wine spreads over the palate with a creamy, almost waxy texture that is enduring and deep.
...hints of cedar, smoke, sweet pipe tobacco and rose petal to play off a core of vibrant red Syrah fruit...very nicely done.
Aromas of scorched earth, cassis, leather and eucalyptus form the nose along with a whiff of lead pencil. On the forward palate, velvety, fine-grained tannins accompany dried cherry, prune, black pepper and vanilla.
...packed with blackberry, blueberry, black pepper, juniper, iron and spice aromas and flavors. Firm and dense, this remains balanced and long.
