Dark purple in color with a wide purplish rim.
Very aromatic nose with plums, blueberries, dust, violets, earth, leather, tobacco leaf and peppercorn. I really liked the nose.
Medium-bodied with medium plus acidity and nice legs.
On the palate, plums, cranberries, blueberries, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather, smoke, river rocks and graphites.
Short finish with round tannins and tangy pomegranates.
This is a nice Syrah from Spain. Showing mild complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Spicy with a tangy finish.
Needs an hour to open up properly, and might need one more year in the bottle to balance itself out. A good everyday red, and better with food.
Made with 100% Syrah grapes and has only 99 calories per 5 oz serving. Organic.
I paired it with Parmesan cheese and crackers.
12% alcohol by volume.

I just tried this wine… and I’m going to write about it because after I read your review… I was like I need to try this!
Hope you enjoy it too
