Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Syrah opens with a very fragrant peppermint bouquet with hints of black cherry, blueberry, and red currant. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, mouthwatering, and very juicy. The flavor profile is a ripe red cherry with mixed in notes of vanilla and menthol. There were also hints of red currant jam and black pepper detected as well. The finish is dry with subtle tannins. This Syrah would nicely complement a rack of barbecue ribs. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Striking aromas of ripe dark fruits radiate from the glass in an earthy, smoky tobacco context. Full, rich fruit flavors of dark berries, whole plum, and blackcurrant fill the palate and hold their flavors through a long and smooth moderately peppery finish.
