Dark red fruit and and black fruits really stand out. Less musky and more fruit concentrated on the nose. Great color and mouthfeel. Classic peppery finish for this cool climate style.

Ripe blueberries and blackberries carry the nose of this opaque and exotic Syrah. The mouth is enticed with flavors of coffee, coca, vanilla and ripe fruit, this Santa Maria Valley Syrah is one to try!

The toasty vanilla/oak was a little strong on opening, but it mellowed after a bit and turned into an enjoyable wine.
