Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Syrah with opaque edges opens with a cola, blueberry and redwood bouquet with additional hints chocolate cherry cordial. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced and super smooth. The flavor profile is mocha, coffee and blueberry with notes of malt. As it opened up, I also detected some hints of steely minerality, smoked meat and dark cherry. The finish is dry and sticks around for quite some time. I would enjoy this Syrah in near term with a Kona coffee crusted sirloin from Capital Grill. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Multi-layered Syrah from the ancient soils of Northridge vineyard. Super focused black cherry, plum and lavender run riot in the nose. The palate's not to be outdone with black molasses, velvet smoking jacket, wild mint, black crushed volcanic rock, silky tannins, vibrant energy and a persistence that continues the ridiculously long finish.
