This is 100% Syrah. Purple in color with slight ruby swirls. The nose is great with black raspberries, black cherries, black olives and smoked meats. Full bodied. On the palate, black raspberries, salinity, and char. Long finish. This is drinking well now and should drink well for the next eight to twelve years. It works well on its own and would work well with hearty meat or lamb based dishes.
