2012. Nice vintage. A bit more age and some breathing it shows lovely. Good black and red fruit. No harsh tannins. Very nice.

2012. Fruitiness balances the medium to high tannins, medium to full bodied, aroma hints of leather, dark figs.

not usually a syrah drinker. this is excellent for the price. silky, lots of jam, but pretty high alcohol content which makes it heavy on the pepper vector.

v surprising Cali Syrah at Hearth -- poured for us blind & I'd have guessed it was some native Greek varietal. Super peppery and structured.
