Ripe blackberries, blueberries, pomegranates, and subtle earthy aromas are in the nose. Integrated oak flavors and firm yet balanced tannins couple with cherry cola, dark fruit, cedar and mocha flavors. A rich, silky mid-palate carries through
into the long finish.
"Inky purple. Textbook syrah aromas of dark berries, olive, smoke and anise, with a strong floral overtone. Rich and weighty but energetic, offering fresh black raspberry and cassis flavors and a jolt of cracked pepper. Fine-grained tannins add support to the persistent, spicy finish. This is complex enough to drink now."
