Very very close to the color of squid ink.
Lovely is a barnyard nose from a bottle of Syrah.
Heavy bodied, hefty. Black currant, arugula, dark dehydrated plums, chocolate mint.
A slurry of unique flavors, with a honed, focused acidity straight through the back end, and into oblivion.

Mosquito-veinous blood-red color. Smells lovely. Herbal tonic and mixed elderberry-blackberry jelly. Bit of tart cherry as well. Also rosehip tea. Flavor is meaty and savory. Black olives, under-ripe cherries and something sanguine. Hint of light roast cold brew coffee. Hint of hard-candy licorice sweet at the end. This is lovely CA Syrah. Drinking spectacularly. — 9 days ago
