Popped and drank, non-blind. Wonderful wine! Inky and full-bodied with a nose of dark fruit and floral accents (seemingly from the stellar Denner Viognier component.) Hits the tongue with blackberry and dark fruit finishing into earth and a touch of pepper, lingering for a while. Smooth and well-integrated tannins, with great mouth-feel/texture and balancing out nicely. This is evolving very nicely as compared to a year ago, much smoother, will still benefit from a short cellar nap (1 more year.) Low alcohol content comparitively to many HUGE central coast syrahs at 14.3%. No alcohol bomb here! Stellar effort here.
