A silky deep ruby in the glass with a wide brim and no signs of bricking. The nose here is deliciously perfumed with plenty of cigar box and smoke upfront. The fruit is still alive and vibrant with black and blue berries and very faint notes of wild strawberry. Violets and menthol with a dash of white pepper. Really an outstanding nose for a twenty year old wine.

Truthfully this doesn’t scream Syrah to me at any point but it’s so damn good that you really end up caring about that. While it may not scream Syrah it definitely does invoke Tuscan scenes. Complex, refined, and full of depth and personality. The palate is downright fruity with a repeat of notes from the nose. Forest floor and dirt with more smoke. Full bodied and quite generous, this feels so much more youthful than it is. A spectacular Italian Syrah that still has plenty of time left.
