Langtry Estate and Vineyards Guenoc Petite Syrah 2012, California

My Rating 87 Points.
Price $11.

Dark ruby / inky in color with a brick rim.

Intense nose of blackberries, blueberries, figs, espresso, dark chocolate, vanilla, licorice, oak, ripe cherries, light cloves, herbs and black pepper.

Full bodied, smooth and bold with great legs and high acidity.

Bone dry on the palate with blackberries, cherries, plums, strawberries, red currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, coffee, chocolate, spices and peppercorn.

Long finish with soft, round tannins, and cherries.

I had this a year ago. This time it was much smoother and more approachable, but not as fruity. I liked it better last year, though. Still, very enjoyable by itself today, but I better drink the rest of my bottles, in the next few months.
Really needs a couple of hours to open up.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
