Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Earthy nose of blueberries, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, vegetables, vinaigrette, earth, leather, forest floor, tobacco leaf, spices, graphite and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, plums, blueberries, oak, vanilla, cloves, tobacco, espresso, spices, pencil lead, peppercorn and leather.

Tangy finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a nice Syrah from Napa Valley. Not fully balanced, but enjoyable with food and by itself. Showing nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Still young and needs another few years in the bottle to mature.
