Review date: December 11, 2009

Wine Review: This very dark purple colored wine opens with a smoky campfire and blackberry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, and very concentrated. The flavor profile is a savory blackberry with notes of black pepper and spicy black raspberry. There is also a hint of plum mixed in as well. The finish is dry and its very mild tannins are slightly prolonged. This suave Syrah would pair perfectly with a big and thick ribeye. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Sweet aromas of blueberries, black raspberries, lavender, as well as bacon fat and graphite. Unctuous with mouth filling flavors of raspberries, black raspberries, blueberries, vanilla, and smoky oak. The tannins transition seamlessly across the palate of this full bodied wine,
