Another amazing Syrah from John Alban.  Inky purple in color, opaque and bright.  The nose is complex and beautiful with black raspberries, roasted meats and roasted herbs, slight dark chocolate and a slight floral note.  Full bodied.  Great plush texture with more than enough acidity to tie everything together.  The palate has flavors of black raspberries, roasted herbs with a nice earthiness underneath.  Long finish.
