Head exploding Syrah with a little Viognier in there as well. Concrete ferment, slaps you in the face with barnyard. Dirty, dirty girl. Awesome balance, tannins are not assertive at all.

This wine has its own ballad. It's smoked sausage, fresh roses, some fois gras for sure... Red fruited touch mostly dark cherries. Very unique profile

There was an awful lot of β€œCayuse funk” at first, but after a few hours it settled into a very nice, elegant, balanced Syrah.

Delicious meaty and fruity...rhoney. Didn't seem overdone. You know you're in the right Fantasy Football league when someone brings this for the draft. Thanks Brent!
