One of the best Syrahs being made anywhere. Purple in color with a slight ruby hue, opaque and bright. The nose is great with black raspberries, slight burnt rubber, black olives, black pepper and slight bacon fat. Full bodied. Velvety texture. Juicy acidity. On the palate, lots of black raspberry fruit with some black olive notes and char. Deep and complex. Light tannins. Long finish. This is just getting near maturity. It drinks great on its own and would work well with beef stew or chili. Drink over the next ten to fifteen years.
