Dense purple-black with a crimson edge, it is almost intimidating in appearance. The nose gives classic Syrah notes of pepper and blackberries, while the barrel aging adds a touch of cedar and coconut. The palate is full and deep with a welcome lift of acidity. As of this writing (November 2014) the tannins are just beginning to knit themselves into what will become a silky texture and carry the wine forward for at least another 5-8 years.
