Top of a double blind flight of French Syrahs. Oh, so good.

Bright, lively and prodigious....@romo said it best "this wine has big shoulders"
The rest of the body is big and broad as well but all in balance. Smoke, game meats, white pepper, wet bay leaf. Special.

This is drinking really well. I'm not sure if it makes truly old bones. Started with iron and meaty notes that opens to reveal black cherry flavors and aromas and subtle peppery notes. The feel of this wine is so elegant.

Black and red cherry. Meaty, chewy texture. Gripping tannins. Pepper.
