2008 Betz La Serenne Syrah

Deep dark purple color that is quite opaque.
Nose is reasonably complex and filled with blackberries and a hint of sweet dark cherry, layered with smoke, cured meat, leather, a trace of tar, anise, licorice, vanilla, and oak.
Flavors of dense black berry, fairly strong pepper, stone, and otherwise follows the nose. Upon opening the palate is not as open and complex as the nose, but given some air it opens nicely and rather quickly. It ends with mild-plus mouth coating tannins and moderate length. Always a lovely wine.
