If you were walking through the woods in the countryside and stumbled upon a pack of wolves feasting on blackberry bushes right next to a campfire, then you'd have this. Likewise I'd probably pair this with smores, and life in general.

Rich, dense and delicious. Peppery notes, tar and dark fruits meld together. Holds up to the plethora of rich flavors on the table.

Expressive nose of pepper, tar, mint, and concentrated dark fruits. Rich without being overextracted, and balanced between savory and fruity. Medium plus body with great structure.

Dark berries, cherries, and some herbal thyme-like aromas entice with a big palate of concentrated blackberries and well integrated oak. Very well balanced despite being high alcohol 15%. Wish I had another bottle!

Blackberry, olive, cassis black pepper. Beautiful well aged Syrah that to me seems to be in a Hermitage style.
