Drank 2/18/29.

Nose of brambly black fruits, underbrush, smoke, and some black cherry. Rich, fruit driven palate, with black cherry liquer, blackberry, forrrest floor, and some medium tannins to lend structure. A style that will have fans in both the new world and old world arenas. Perhaps a bit quick on the finish. I would mistake this for a GSM blend rather than pure syrah.

An outstanding value at around $16.

3/23/7/4/2 + 50 = 89 pts.
