Blueberry jam, licorice and minerals. Muted on nose a bit. Hides the 15% alcohol well. Delicious!

A smoky, inky Syrah with yummy quality. Blackberries, soil and ink come to mind. The wine is fat with great texture, tannins and a bit of spice. Awesome finish. Need to buy more.

Evolving into a big-nosed Kalamata olive. Some blueberry, baking spices. Jammy.

Full flavored, with dark berries. Hint of vanilla. Smooth textured. Subtle white pepper on finish.

Dense with deep blackberry jam flavors overplayed with pepper. Definitely leans to the ripe site - very powerful and flavorful.

Absolutely beautiful! Nearly effervescent in it's clean and zippy front palette presentation, bright and fruity on the mid with a lovely finish. Delish.
