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!
