This is. A huge wine (15.6% alcohol) that drinks lighter than it is. Probably close to its peak now, with tannins in the background and a nice, s lightly smoky palate. A very good, he w world style Syrah.

Dark ruby color. A sweet meaty bouquet with good fruit on the nose. Soft fruity on the palate with good acidity and jammy blackberry flavors and a long finish. Soft wood overtones. Extremely satisfying syrah with just the right amount of alcohol and tannins.

Ruby and magenta upon opening. Darkened considerably by the end of the night. Hickory smoke and roast beef initially on the nose. Ripe raspberry and cedar. Perfumed, berries and white flowers -- no trace of alcohol (15.6%). Touches of bay leaf and matchstick which add complexity. Crushed rock and licorice. Blueberry.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
