Great nose, sweet vanilla, cocoa powder and cassis. Extracted bright red fruits, cherry, raspberry, red currants and rhubarb. Still fairly tannic on the backend, I'd give it a few more years. This says pure Syrah but to me fastest like a Syrah/Cabernet mix.
What a let down. In no way does this wine live up to the hype. Either it's dead asleep and needs 10 more years or it's just not as advertised. Was decanted for 6 hours and still nothing. For the price avoid like certain death, which is not far off mind you.
Wow, double decanted and attempted to drink 4 hrs later, and still unyielding. Under a wall of tannins and structure is massive concentration of black cherry and coffee notes. Don't touch for a few years. 94+
Had to try one to see if I should stay with Sheridan or not after not being in love with some of their mid price point bottles, and my palate moving away from this style. Decanted this all day. Drank with spaghetti and meatballs. Well structured Syrah that is a big huge beast...dark berries and chocolate. Tannins and intensity is prominent. Agree with other poster this reminds me more of Cali than Washington in style (though shouldn't be a surprise given their other offerings I have tried). I guess these integrate but I honestly am not sure. This style is a bit too much for me. Loses a bit of the Syrah varietal and becomes more just a "big wine" - as example drank with Cab lovers and they liked this a lot. Still well made and not bad at all...just not my style...
