Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Syrah from Washington State opens with a very inviting black raspberry and boysenberry bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a delicious mild mineral infused blackberry with notes of black licorice. I also detected hints of plum, black pepper and a touch of oak. I love the way the minerality and fruit are woven together in this wine. The finish is dry and its well managed moderate tannins drift away over a very long time. This Syrah went very well with the Bolognese at Mooo. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Textbook K Syrah. THIS IS IT! Game, black olive, crushed stone and a bouquet of fresh flowers thrown in. WOW!

Your comments on this wine:

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
