Blackberries and vanilla duel for aromatic supremacy with bacon fat and violets: there are no losers in this battle. Rich, concentrated flavors of cassis and bittersweet dark chocolate join bits of crushed rock and cinnamon. The acidity is restrained, but the opulent mouthfeel espouses hedonism.
Like a roadside candle or incense shop, the 2020 Syrah lifts from the glass with a spicy mix of dried blackberries, blueberries, clove and citrus rinds. This soothes the palate with ripe red and blue fruits as juicy acidity further excites under a pretty air of inner violet florals. The 2020 doesn’t miss a beat, tapering off lightly structured but long and packed full of dark berry concentration.
