This is 100% Syrah. Purple in color with ruby swirls, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is great with black raspberries, smoked meat, slight graphite and spices. Full bodied. Firm tannins. Nice acidity. On the palate, black raspberries with underlying minerality. Great, lush texture. Long finish. Delicious. This could use a few more years, but is drinking well already. It should drink well for the next twenty to twenty-five years. Great on its own, this will work well with hearty stews or other big foods. Is should improve with cellar time.
