"Glass-staining ruby. Deep, pungent aromas of blueberry, cassis, pipe tobacco, olive and pepper. Sappy and sweet, with vibrant black and blue fruit flavors supported by a firm mineral underpinning. This broad, sappy syrah offers a suave blend of sweetness and juicy acidity. Finishes spicy and vibrant, with slow-building tannins and excellent persistence. (JR) 93-94 points"
