An engaging and elegant Syrah. It is bright and rich to the nose, offering blueberry, boysenberry, red raspberry and red rose aromas, with notes of bouillon, smoked meat and black and white peppercorn in support. It is already silky on the palate, with a generous mouth-feel and lots of blackberry, raspberry, bouillon, black tea, and peppercorn flavors that linger in a youthful, yet elegantly expressive mix.

91 points, Connoisseurs' Guide: “Smells of sweet spices and floralaccented berryish fruit gain additional breadth from background notes of smoked meats. Medium-full to full in weight on the palate and very well-balanced with a certain light spring to its ripe, convincingly deep flavors..."
