Wine Review: This very dark opaque purple Syrah opens with a blueberry bouquet with hints of vanilla. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, extremely well balanced, smooth, and silky. The flavor profile is a ripe and extracted blackberry with hints of black licorice. The finish is dry and its fine tannins are slightly prolonged. This wine would pair well with venison or bison. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Toasty smoke and black pepper, along with cherry and berry aromas, dominate an expressive nose. On the palate the attack is soft and full, with notes of mocha and baking spices surrounding bright cherry and raspberry fruit. The long finish is rich and layered. Drink 2010 – 2016.
