I considered giving this a full 100 but lost my nerve. But this wine is exactly what it is supposed to be. Deep, soft, smooth, silky, round mouthfeel, luxurious blueberry and blackberry fruit with a spicy edge. Truly exquisite and elegant.
Very dark, extracted and almost viscous. Sweet penetrating nose of lavender, some camphor, a bit of tar. and lots of red berry. Long 30 second + finish with bold very California, warm climate expression of Syrah. Might be better with another year or so of bottle age but pretty tasty now.
