  14.5% alc
Color: Deep ruby. (3.0) Bouquet: Subtle tar complements blackberry jam. Lively minerality/acidity. (3.0) Body: Excellent acidity and fruit. Rich, silky mouthfeel. Light heavyweight. (3.0) Flavor: Parallels bouquet, but shows more delicious blackberry. (3.5) Finish: Not as giving as flavor, but minerals and acidity make the flavors linger. (3.0)
Overall: Excellent cool climate Syrah. Blackberry jam fruit is propelled by minerally acidity, keeping it light on its feet fir its weight. Also has nuances of tar and black licorice. It its best now and in the next 2 years. Excellent value. (15.5)
