The Smoking loon wine is a hidden gem amongst the Smoking Loon family. Immediately you are invited in with the rich and dark aromas of boysenberry, blackberry and freshly cracked black pepper. Although there is strong fruit character on the nose, it has a bit of a rustic edge with notes of Herbs de Provence and the essence of sandalwood. Medium-bodied and smooth, this Syrah is sure to please the palate with ripe, jammy flavors of marionberry, black cherry and even a touch of milk chocolate dusted with notes of vanilla through its lingering finish.
