White pepper and complex floral notes team up with black fruit and cassis. On the palate, the spiciness melts seductively into dark chocolate, molasses and maple syrup flavors. The lengthy, persistent finish emphasizes this deliciously balanced Syrah’s charms.

92 points, Wine Spectator (Oct. 2009): “Mixes ripe, rich wild berry and blackberry fruit with savory herb, spice, pepper and cedar notes. Complex, balanced, focused and harmonious, this is pleasing to drink.”

Just 308 cases made. Enjoy with gamy meats like lamb and venison or a flat-iron-cut or rib eye steak.  Hold up to 10-12 years.
