dark red body, scarlet red rim, in the color. dark berry, blackberry, tart black cherry, earth, spice, espresso, leather, on the nose. structured tannins, balanced acid, on the finish. another 5-10 years this might settle down.
Distinct meat, leather & earth that I expect from syrah. Nose of dark ripe cherries, light floral perfume, a hint of dill, & a bit of spice. Taste of meat, leather, dark fruit, finishing with floral notes, herbs, spice & firm tannins.
