(2012 Vintage) It begins with very pleasant aromas of dark fruit, black licorice, a little smoked meat (bacon!) and a bit of cedar and graphite. The wine tastes dark and juicy and I love it. You'll find plenty of black cherry, plum, more black licorice, oaky spice and a graphite like mineral streak in this medium-bodied Syrah. On the dry, long finish the oaky spice and minerals continue with just a hint of tobacco.
