According to Jancis Robinson – “Syrah, one of the noblest black grape varieties, if nobility is
bestowed by an ability to produce serious red wines capable of aging majestically for decades.”
We think we have one for the ages!
Upon first opening, the wine has a wonderful spicy forest floor tone on the nose which evolves into dark and peppery black berry fruit aromas. These aromas are enhanced by toasted vanilla and caramel notes with hints of floral and light herb tones. On the palate, the wine is rich yet lively on the attack. A full-bodied mid-palate with well-structured tannins frame the wine nicely into the finish. The finish itself is long, with medium grain tannins and lingering flavors of boysenberry, blackberry, pepper, and vanilla.
