Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Syrah from L'Ecole opens with a shy black currant and black licorice nib bouquet with hints of oak and blackberry. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, very smooth, layered, and fleshy. The flavor profile is black currant and graphite blend with notes of menthol, mocha, and black licorice. We also detected hints of black tea, black pepper, and oak. The finish is dry, and its tingly acidity and moderate sticky tannins are nicely sustained. The Tasting Panel would suggest cellaring this wine for a while. If you can’t wait, we suggest decanting this Syrah for a while before pairing it with grilled short ribs. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This bold, concentrated Estate Syrah exudes balance, marrying luscious fruit and savory aromas, including blackberry preserves balanced by baking spice and black olive. The complex palate shows further flavors of violets and juicy black plum notes. The style is generous and silky, finishing with beautifully integrated tannins and a persistent finish.
