This is a nice Syrah from the Northern Rhone that is not expensive and drinking well now. Garnet in color, opaque and bright. The nose is tight at first but opens quickly showing black cherries, char, slight black raspberries and slight black olive. Medium bodied. Firm tannins. On the palate, black cherries with char and good acidity. Nice finish. This should drink well for the next five to seven years. A nice wine with pizza or a (veggie) burger.
