Wine Details

Huge wine, both on the nose and on the palate. Blackberry, cassis, and white pepper aromas. On the palate, plums, dusty earth, and mocha are wrapped in soft, well-integrated tannins. This is a deep wine, and as it opens up sweet fruits and black pepper notes emerge from the tannins. When I originally tasted this wine I thought it had much more new oak on it but, as it turns out, the entirety of the Syrah component was aged for 18 months in 3rd-fill barrels. It seems Syrah is very sensitive to new oak tannins, so a little goes a long way.
