This is made from Syrah grown in Washington state, shipped cold to northeast Ohio where it is vinified. Purple in color, ruby at the rim, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has black cherries, slight black raspberries, cloves, spice, slight burnt rubber (not a bad thing), and some chocolate. Medium to full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, this is cooler climate in style. Boysenberries, char and slight chocolate. Good acidity. Moderate finish. This is nice on its own but really begging for food. It would work very well with Turkish food (for the adventurous). Drink over the next 5 to eight years.
