DOU (dead on uncorking) - 2011 has lost all its fruit. Nothing to drink here. Move along.

Dark and fruity, not too jammy, light spice on the finish

Cherries, vanilla, olives on the nose. Berries with light tannins and good spice. Nice finish.

Fumey, and Smokey dark fruits, vanilla, dill, all spice, basil, blueberry and cedar, anisette, liquorice, and real coco on the nose and then a raspberry, minerality with a fiery acidity on the palate. I had to try it. Because I love Syrah.

Lots of nice ripe red fruits and blueberry. Pretty solid acidity and smoother tannins.
Plenty of spice for a Syrah had the 2013.

On 12/10/16 at chestnut in Asheville here for the candlelight Biltmore tour. A wonderful soft full wine with a dark clear ruby color and dry crisp cherries!

Dry, full bodied Syrah with a defined spice, long finish. Red currant and toasted oak notes come out in the Cabernet.
