Review

Bright violet. Exotically perfumed blackberry, cassis, smoked meat, licorice and resinous herb aromas, with a subtle peppery overtone. Highly expressive syrah, with sweet red and dark berry, Indian spice and floral flavors given shape by silky tannins. The smoky note repeats strongly on the broad, sweet, very long finish.
