Inky black like a black hole. Horsey sweaty almost rhone like. Bit of rose with a honey like nose. Acid is still not quite resolved but what a lot of tannins! Black cherries cassis and a bit of flinty aftertaste. Very good.

(Bonny Doon Nacido Syrah) COLOR-dark; NOSE-leather; slight bacon fat; tons of white & black pepper; I love that it is not over oaked or over-the-top; TASTE-I really like this because of the obnoxious balance; you can taste the dirt; fertilizer; great sour fruit; great balance of fruit & tannins; very lush; and awfully gamey (a venison component); a savory smoked meat; this is an old world play; the fruit is so pure; makes me think of the Rhone; GV-??
