    Winemaker's Notes:

    "If a blast of thick but classy oak doesn't bother you, then this single-vineyard wine comes highly recommended. It gets better with every minute of air, and along the way you get aromas of charcoal, mint, licorice and berries, which are followed by flavors of blackberry, prune cake and molasses. This modern, ripe, eminently drinkable Syrah weighs in at 14.5% alcohol."

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark, but pure and focused, with espresso-tinged tannins carrying the dark plum, briar, fig cake and bittersweet cocoa notes. Long, muscular finish is fine-grained and should cellar nicely.

    Wow! Decanted via vinturi for 2 hours This wine has nose of strong cherry, plum and cocoa. The cherry and extended black and blue fruits continue on the palate. A very full mouthfeel and still a good structure with oak tannins and a note of licorice and espresso on the long finish. This wine is delicious!
