Peppery and meaty, yet backed by a full complement of blackberry fruit, this wine contains all of the balanced attributes we’re looking for in California Syrah. Ripe fruit, peppery spice and meaty complexity are together in a harmonious whole. Picks up a hint of anise on the long finish.
A dark-hued wine, brimmiong with black cherry, cola and spice aromas. On the palate, it’s richly textured, with bitter herb and charry smoke tones followed by chocolate, blackberry and sage flavors. Tannins are a little rustic, but on the whole, this wine serves up plenty of hedonistic pleasure. A first release.
