A fairly expressive nose of dark fruit, smoked meat, pepper, herbs, anise and oak (vanilla, mocha). The palate reveals dark cherry, dark plum, blackberry and mid/late palate black pepper with more oak influence. A mid/full bodied syrah, the tannins are somewhat soft and acidity is medium plus. I wanted a bit more structure, but good length nonetheless. A touch hot. July 2015.
Very plush and appealing. Somewhat jammy and oaky, but with some substance. Blueberry and dark cherry jam, dark chocolate, vanilla, smoke, cinnamon, tobacco, sweet black olive on the nose. On the palate, it is almost blueberry pie, with chocolate, cigar box, vanilla and cedar. Medium tannins, and acidity. Silky and smooth. Would probably be at its best with smoky, sweet ribs.
