This is a blend of 89% Syrah and 11% Petit Sirah. It takes time for the Petite to emerge and today, the Syrah is really the show. And a great show it is. Inky purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has black raspberries, char, violets, slight roasted meats and herbs. Full bodied with a lush texture. On the palate, juicy black raspberries with slight blueberries, and some underlying char and earthiness. Medium tannins. Long finish. This drinks great on its own and went well with a chocolate cake but would work well with Indian food or roasts as well.
