I don't remember it being this sweet when I tried it 6+ months ago, but I get that now. The nose turned me off because it was overwhelmingly alcoholic. Too much candied fruit lacking a backbone. Definitely not stylistically Syrah. I miss any pepper-like qualities. If you're looking for fruit, this is your Syrah. Do not expect an Old World Syrah, otherwise you will be disappointed. I wouldn't classify it as 'dead' or in its 'latent' period but I also wouldn't expect it benefiting from any further time spent in the bottle.

Hopefully it tasted better a couple years ago. It was a flabby dud.

Surprisingly good. At first it had a sort of funk, but it disappeared after being open (for only 15 minutes.) Delicate like a pinot noir, but quite spicy on the finish. Nice vanilla oak. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't past its drinking window.
