(From 2012 Vintage) Saturated bright ruby. Reticent, high-pitched aromas of black raspberry, kirsch, licorice and violet, complemented by some sweet oak. Very ripe, dense and smooth, showing an almost liqueur-like quality to its black cherry and saline flavors.
(From 2011 Vintage) The deep ink hue is the first sign of the intensity found in this 2011 Syrah. Aromas of rich berry fruit such as boysenberry and blackberry, pomegranate and dark chocolate are intertwined with spicy flavors of licorice, cinnamon and toasty oak. The palate is coated with firm tannins and gripping acidity.
