Wine Review: This dark onyx colored Syrah opens with a mild black currant bouquet with a hint of blackberry and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a smoky oak and gentle blackberry blend with notes of plum. The finish is dry and its sticky tannins show nice length. The panel also detected a touch of heat as well. The panel suggested pairing this very good Syrah with tangy pulled pork or a flank steak in the near term. - KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: Dark, lush and layered with blackberry, ripe plum and blueberry flavors complimented by aromas of black tea and incense. The wine offers great depth and richness with a silky texture and vibrant finish.
