Barrel sample. Beautiful dark color. Surprisingly fragrant nose of earth,spice and tons of floral fragrances. Obvious cool climate Syrah profile. Medium plus acidity. Medium finish of the same that was surprisingly well integrated but obviously young. Especially considering this was a barrel sample, this was very very good. 91+

N: Fresh soil, dust, leather and dark berry. P: Dusty red berry, earth, lots of leather, rustic but smooth tannins and some red apple. F: Medium with more of the same and a snap of acidity that brings you back for more. Very food friendly and waaay out drinks its price point. 91+
