    Winemaker Notes

    Handsome dark purple-red. Fresh, urgent, pretty smell of crushed raspberries and smoke boils out of the glass. The wine is bright, lean and "nervous" in the mouth, showing lively balance, medium weight, very good length, and sweet tannins. As the wine opens, after a few minutes breathing, it takes on a bit of weight and the smell of pepper begins to emerge. It's deceptively soft, and the sense is that a more brooding side will begin to show before long, (tasted after being open over 24 hours, it had gained some weight in the mouth, and the flavors had fallen a bit more into focus. This is a sneaky wine that will bear some reckoning with in 6 or 7 years.) but it's a remarkably pleasurable Syrah much sooner than Durell is known for.
