Review

Bright purple. Textbook syrah aromas of black and blue fruits, olive tapenade, smoked meat and violet, with a peppery topnote adding vibrancy. Sweet vanillin oak spices build with air and carry onto the palate, which offers intense blueberry and floral pastille flavors and a hint of bitter chocolate. At once rich and lively, finishing with strong punch and smooth, well-knit tannins.
