We were looking for something a little plusher last night and this fit the bill. Easy drinking and a little simple. Soft tannins. Today this is better balanced as the acidity seems to balance the fruit better. Gains a little olive note too. Not very complex but a tasty and easy drinking wine.
Similar notes and experience to the prior ones. Is was a dark, somewhat soft, but enjoyable Syrah.for the first hour, it was all about the fruit, which was lush and round. The second hour, things started to fill out a bit, and in came some meaty, peppery notes - but nothing overwhelming. Quite a nice wine.
PnP: Dark purple. Blackberry and briar on the nose... more restrained and elegant than "in your face" syrahs... smooth fruit flavors with hints of white pepper and spice... again, restrained. Integrated tannins and medium finish. Very nice. Thise who don;t like BIG syrahs will enjoy this.
