Wine Review: This opaque and almost pitch black colored Syrah opens with a new leather bouquet with hints of blackberry and black cherry in the background. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and savory. The flavor profile is a mild oak influenced gentle black currant with notes of beef jerky and salami. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are well managed. This wine would pair well with beef bourguignon. Cheers - Ken
Winemaker Notes: The wine has a deeply saturated purple-black color. On the nose, the wine shows some complexity with dark berry fruit competing with mineral, lavender, white pepper for attention. On the palate, the wine shows tension between the ripe fruit, acidity, and tannins.
