Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Syrah from Red Mountain opens with a musty turned earth and blackberry bouquet with hints of green peppercorns, spiced plum and menthol. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic, round and savory. The flavor profile is a mellow blackberry along with notes of oak and mulling spices. We also detected hints of stony minerality, black currant, black pepper and licorice. The finish is dry and its flavors and modest tannins drift away nicely. This Syrah would pair well with venison bourguignon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: From its near-opaque color to its alluring fruit and fascinating savory undertones, this wine offers remarkable depth and richness. Aromas of blueberry and wild blackberry leap from the glass, followed by sophisticated layers of pink peppercorn, roast beef, graphite, loamy earth and violets. On the palate, the entry is juicy and flowing, with plush, supportive tannins and hints of minerality and spice framing the seductive fruit flavors throughout a long, luxurious finish.
