with a fruity attack. Full body, medium-plus acid, medium-plus tannin.
Structure is firm considering the fruit. Ripe blackberry, blueberry
preserves and fresh dark plums. Floral with green coffee bean and
bittersweet chocolate. Cinnamon, vanilla and cedar suggest new oak
aging. Fresh turned earth is subtle, but present.
Lack of the secondary aromas of pepper, smoke, grilled meats, bacon should be the clues against syrah.
