This wine is deep garnet in color with inky black tints. Lovely aromas of violets, blueberry, licorice (red and black), and white pepper. Intense flavors of olallieberry and blackberry with lingering hints of red raspberry. The wine coats the entire palate with complex and lively tannins.
93 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (4/10) “If very much in the camp of those Syrahs showing the gamy, spiced-meat traits of the grape, this brash and broad-shouldered wine is equally keyed on unabashed ripeness. It is laced with dark chocolate and fights with a bit of finishing heat, but it is so rich and well-stuffed that it succeeds all the same. It may or may not find more refinement with age, but, with a few years, it should serve as a fine foil to flavorful braised meats and well-seasoned roasts.”
