This is an absolutely beautiful, near-perfect Syrah, nicely balanced and smooth with no jamminess , and full of rich blueberry and cherry flavors. The oak is so restrained as to be subliminal. Wonderfully crafted with a tip of the cap towards Australia rather than France! 😸

A sublime food wine, full of rich plum and bright blueberry fruits, this 97% Syrah/3% Petit Sirah is versatile enough to pair with meat, chicken, or vegetarian dishes alike. This wine is sure to impress, and would make an explemplary cocktail wine as well.

Oh my this wine was sooo balanced. I've had older RC's and this really has knocked it out of park. The nose was big, fruity nose with a hint of tobacco, fruity, perfume, and coco finishing with vanilla kick. Great Syrah!

Nose is of spicy oak. Has just enough fruit to balance the oak. Finish is chalky, I think American oak, and plum. Drinking this without food while we cook dinner. The best way to cook! Going to go great with food.
