Sonoma County Syrah

Tasting Note:

Dark ruby-purple, verging on opaque. A wonderful nose of black olive, cherry, plum, blood orange, herbs and spice. Very complex! On the palate, flavors echo the aromas. Impressively concentrated yet deliciously approachable. Enjoy this wine upon release through 2018. (MRO – 10/30/08)
