Magnum. Was great. Meaty spice, dark fruits, earth and pepper once it opened a bit. Christmas dinner wine with prime rib.

Serious Syrah. Bright, brambled raspberry. Reserved smoke and game. Subtle florals. Soft mineral. Tightly complex and weighty structure with approachable front and tannic finish that will undoubtedly be softened and developed with time.

Still needs some time to resolve but there's enough fruit to enjoy right now. Right now with burgers.

This is the definition of cool climate Syrah. Violets, black pepper, and smoked meat. So much going on, yet so much delicacy. I could drink this every day

Ripe blue fruits with peppery spices... A little on the luscious side.
