Very good medium ruby color. Lively, highly nuanced aromas of blackberry, black raspberry, violet pastille, game, gunflint, dark chocolate, spices, smoke and mint. Fat, dense and full, with sappy berry flavors complicated by mineral, spice and white pepper notes. Firm, juicy Syrah with accurate varietal character.
*Two Stars* Wonderfully rich, high in concentrated blackberry qualities and given a big boost by hints of dried violets, the nose of this attractive Syrah leads to a lush, supple feel in the mouth and to plump, fruity flavors that provide an impressive second to wine's aromatic beginnings. A background stratum of tannin insures a few years of ageworthiness, but this one demands no such forbearance to show well.
Framed by creamy, toasty espresso bean-scented oak, the syrupy core of black cherry, blackberry and boysenberry flavors fold together nicely, giving it a sense of completeness, finishing with a pretty fruit aftertaste.
