This is so fucking good. Carbonic lift at the beginning that leads into black pepper, black olive, tart blueberry, ripe blackberry, and loads of Rosemary.

Youthful purple. Dark berries, violet and black olive on the deeply scented nose. Juicy, penetrating and spicy on the palate, offering densely packed, slow-to-open blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and a smoky topnote. Chewy tannins give shape to the persistent, spice-tinged finish, which strongly repeats the cherry note. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, Mar 2016)

Smoke, char, tar and graphite on the nose. Aroma spectrum focused on secondary aromas. Chalk, mineral, well integrated wood, ground black pepper, baking spices, beef reduction.
Lively acidity, melting tannins, lingering finish. Excellent old world Syrah. Drink now or by the end of next year.

Carnal deep dark wine from 30 days on skins/stems yet with angelic fragrance and silky mouthfeel.

Captures that benchmark rusticity while offering up a framework of dark terroir character. Really delicious
