    (blended with 8% syrah from Farella Vineyard in Coombsville): Red-ruby. Blackberry, blueberry and licorice on the nose. Sweet, dense and firmly built, with some oak-driven tannins currently giving a hard edge to the intense flavors of dark berries, spices, bitter chocolate and mint. Today the tannins are quite aggressive. An awkward showing. Incidentally, winemaker Hirby told me that he uses the syrah from cool Coombsville to add depth and lift. This will need another look in a few years.
