Nose of blackberry and chocolate
Richly texture on the palate and full-bodied
Finish of black currant, blackberry, and vanilla custard
This Syrah is big and rich. It has opulent, ripe fruit characteristics and is richly textured. Is it over the top? Well, not if you're in the mood for this style. Just know what you're getting in to and pop the cork when you're in the mood for envelope-pushing ripeness.
I paid $18 on sale, with the regular price listed at $20. Raise a glass!
