Araujo Eisele Vineyard Syrah 2006
This wine shows a smoky nose with hints of leather and gaminess and a touch of slate. In the mouth, it is dense and voluptuous with flavors of black cherry and blackberry around a core of elegant but immense sweet tannins, finishing with a long chocolate persistence. Notes winemaker Francoise Peschon: This full-bodied wine shows enormous intensity without any heaviness. The elegance of the tannins balances their depth, and the smoky and flinty character adds charm and complexity to the rich fruit and earthy notes.
