Upon opening, I knew this was a special bottle. The color and smell on the cork was beautiful, and the color into the glass from the first pour was dark and luxurious. Received this to sample as a wine club offering (though the notice said we were supposed to receive the 06) and was not dissapointed. This was a wonderful yummy bottle of Syrah. A dark, bold wonderful invasion of the senses. Very complex array or smells and tastes that evolved over time. Just sumptious!
Earthy & Spicy
Very complex; Black fruits and smoke on the nose; A little too much heat/alcohol for my taste, but fairly balanced; Richly concentrated palate with a creamy texture, black fruit, pepper, and licorice; Medium-long finish; Overall, well-made. I enjoyed it (it got better towards the end of the bottle), although not my typically favorite style of Syrah, still quite good. Just make sure to open it and let it sit a while.
