Blackberries and charred oak, dry but not I need a glass of water dry. Not so much Oak to overpower. We drank it and said, “Not too bad” but for $5.99 and a week where we felt like unsung heroes this was perfect. Would be great with a steak but we drank it as a OMG we made it through the week and it was perfect.

Fine; needs time to breathe. Vanilla and red fruit. Short finish.

Not quite the depth of other Syrah's but can't beat the $5 price at TJs. Hope this remains in stock for a while.

Was not as "old world" tasting aTJ's cashier that hard sold this to led me to believe. That said, it was definitely Syrah, but lacked complexity and had singular fruit and oak notes. However, this was pleasant drinking and cheap so I really can't complain.
