Phenomenal nose: dark red berries, smoky minerality, a bit of sweet spice and a bit of funk. Mouthfilling flavors are very clingy, but the wine is soft and seems almost weightless. Savory, iodine, smoky fire pit, charred beef. Long-ass finish. Really good stuff.

UPDATE: Night 2 this is showing even more depth and complexity. Upping from 9.2 to 9.3

Shades of Piemonte. Juicy berry with a beautiful graphite finish.

Delightful Syrah. Has strong notes of currant or blackberry that really sets the wine apart. One of the best Syrah's at this price point. Great value and taste.

Sweet plum and blackberry scents, with big dollops of teriyaki and charcoal. Full and silky In the mouth, balancing broody stewed fruit flavors with savory, peppery accents. It's irresistible.

Nice ruby color, clear. Smell: cherry, plum, mushrooms. Taste: medium body for a Syrah, good sweetness on the front end that quickly gets over powered by the tannins. Seems a bit flabby, lacking a balancing acidity. The finish lingers for quite some time. Served at room temperature using an aerator. As the bottle sits open, the tannins soften and the balance improves immensely. Recommend early decanting before serving.
