A beautiful Red Mountain Syrah. Classic characters of red tart fruits, blueberry pancakes, black pepper, fresh ground cumin seed, and hint of vanilla, dark cocoa powder and chili powder. The entry is tart with a lot of fruit and spice flavors. There is a slight aggression on the mid-palate which leads to a smooth and creamy finish. This Syrah has a rugged elegance to it. Smelling and tasting this wine reminds you of the Red Mountain landscape. Slightly savage, yet beautiful.
