Deep dark center, dark red to brown rim, signs of age. Smokey, malty, minty, blackberries, saddle soap, herby finish (rosemary, thyme), olives. Smooth, glycerine, redcurrants, blackcurrants, low acidity and tannin, great length. Excellent syrah, nose is reminiscent of a Tardieu-Laurent syrah but with a sweeter nose and body. Ready to drink now, won't last too much longer.
Dark garnet inky color. Full bodied, thick chewy, almost coating the tongue - forward black and blue fruits, ripe black raspberry turns to a tone of spice, hint of cedar and kirsch with a slight metallic/mineral undertone - ends with a full, moderate soft chewy tannin finish. Opened at OTBN (Open That Bottle Night) dinner.
