Tasting Profile

Look:

Black and opaque.

Smell:

Wow. Smoked meat, teriyaki, chocolate covered espresso beans, white pepper, blackberry jam, and dried lavender. Pretty amazing array of vivid scents.

Taste:

It’s a massive wine. The flavors are framed by luscious black fruit: soy sauce, blueberries, camp smoke, bacon, grilled peach, 70% cacao chocolate, and more. Unparalleled complexity for a California Syrah.

Finish:

Ripe and intense, but somehow manages to avoid heat and bluster. Mouth coating. Tooth staining. Incredibly delicious.

Pairing:

This makes a strong case for a stand alone drink. It can handle baby back ribs, mole, and hearty winter stews like beef bourgignon.
