A beautifully polished wine. This stunning Syrah has a deep concentration and violet color. Crushed, ripe blueberries and blackberries dominate the nose and palate, with a touch of fresh fig notes. Secondary flavors of tapenade come to mind along with a medley of peppercorns and rosemary. There are sweet purple florals, reminiscent of fresh violets. A hint of new oak lends to a vanilla and baking spice element to the long finish.
