Layered aromatics of blackberry, blueberry, and currant mingle with a touch of complex spices and herbs on the nose. The wine explodes on the palate with rich layered flavors of lush blackberry, Bing cherry and a touch of pomegranate followed by notes of licorice, dark cocoa, forest floor and a touch of mint. This Syrah has an incredibly savory sensation with firm structure and acidity that leads into a finish of fine integrated silky tannins, and great acidity.
