Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Syrah based blend from Idaho opens with a mild blackberry and black plum bouquet with hints of gentle black jellybean and Earl Grey tea. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, smooth and quite fresh. The flavor profile is similar to the nose. It features a blend of mild blackberry and boysenberry with notes of black licorice and black plum. I also detected hints of black pepper and plump raisin. The finish is dry, and its flavors, acidity and mild tannins fade away nicely. I would pair this Idaho red blend with your favorite homemade meatloaf recipe. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Deep dark rich velvet in color this is our very traditional Syrah based blend. The nose really reflects the dirty Syrah from Idaho with earth, wet gravel, and hints of graphite. The body has some cherry and lots of different spices mixed with smoke, which helps add to a really long finish and it almost feels hot on your tongue.
