Wine Education Service Pacific NW Tasting (London, England): Very, very deep colour. No sign of 7 years of age. Aromas of black fruits, cherries, spice and a distinctive perfume. Mouthfeel is silky, still very fresh, ripe fruit. Very good length. Nice balance and a great structure. Big, but very well made.
A surprisingly good syrah at this price point. Smooth, moderately rich, fruit-forward style lacking some of the spice and smoke that I like in Wa. syrahs. I liked this bottle better than the previous bottle two years ago. A particularly good pairing with grilled lamb.
Red/violet color. Faint aroma of red apple initially, followed quickly by leather and spice notes. Black cherries and nutmeg on the front palate. Silky smooth texture and medium body. Finish lingers for 20 seconds. Drinking very well now, probably near/at peak.
