Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Syrah will appeal to Pinot Noir lovers. It opens with a smoky cherry-pomegranate bouquet with a hint of coffee. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and approachable. The flavor profile is a ripe wild strawberry with notes of minerality. We also detected hints of red cherry and lavender. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity are slightly prolonged. The Panel suggested pairing this Syrah with grilled salmon. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of exotic pink peppercorns, licorice, black cherry, fresh mushrooms, dark cocoa and a hint of allspice. The palate is earthy and luscious with flavors of black olives, cardamom spice and secondary smoky char characters.
