Rich, simple. Basic Syrah and good value for money. Chocolate-y and meaty so I guess those of y’all into bacon brownies would dig it.

Dark, rustic red in color. Initial nose of candied nuts, berries and cedar. Forward palette was softer than expected with dark berry. Very little peppery spice. More of a baking spice. Smooth tannin finish. Lingered big vanilla bean flavors for me. Paired braised short ribs and polenta. A good drinking Syrah especially for beginners. I prefer a little more peppery earthiness in syrahs. But a good bargain for the price

A steal. Dark chocolate, over-ripe red fruits, sea salt, woodsy. I feel like I’m in the PNW forest.

Rich and full of fruit notes but a bit sour tasting. Not my favorite.

Peppery with scents of smoke and leather. Smooth and soft. Perfect and tasty to drink.

Inky deep purple color with a nose of potpourri, tomato, and plum. Can definitely taste the oak influence. A good, full bodied mouthfeel, but seems a little disjointed on the finish.
