This 2006 Syrah is dark, soft and spicy with a deep red-purple hue. The nose, reminiscent of dark berry fruits with smoky oak and chocolate undertones, yields to rich plum and cherry flavors in the mouth. There is a hint of black olive in the wine that complements the red fruit character. Soft, mouth-filling grape and barrel tannins slowly lead into a long finish. Already drinking well at time of bottling, the wine will continue to improve with age.
