Dark purple in color with a short purple rim.
Light nose of blueberries, currants, plums, oak, licorice, spices, espresso, red candy, cola, vegetables, leather, earth, black tea and black pepper.
Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, smoke, tobacco leaf, vegetables, vinaigrette, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee and black pepper.
Long tangy finish with firm tannins and tangy cranberries.
This is a young Syrah from Northern Rhône. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel and nice complexity.
Good by itself or with food. Better after 2 hours of airtime when it shows the tannins.
Still young and needs another 5 to 10 years of additional bottle time.
I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers, but it was really good with Brie cheese.
100% Syrah grapes were aged in French oak barrels for 6 months.
13% alcohol by volume.
