Washington State Fruit funk [that tabacco meets cabbage the aka washington pH levels etc etc goodness] , with nice floral notes, high acid, med+ tannin so silky, a fantastic wine balanced with great fruit and earth and funk
Decanted and consumed over 3 hours. Dark purple, violet hue with minimal light transmission. No detectable sediment. Initially the nose was a bit young and vegetal, but improved after the first hour of decanting. Smells of blackberries, maturing red cherries, and pepper. The midpalate was average, had more flavors of dark berries and could have been fuller. The finish evolved to a moderate length and ended with a peppery (slightly tannic) bite. This is a nice Washington state 100% Syrah that is still young. It should improve and I wouldn't drink another bottle of this vintage for atleast two more years. It is also a great value wine at $30 a bottle.
