NVWE Notes: Appealing from the moment the cork is pulled, the nose of this Syrah rolls out as a rich and focused wave of black cherry, black currant, dried cherry, red vines, black fig, jerk spice, bouillon, black peppercorn, licorice root, fig bar and molasses cookie scents. On the palate the tannins prove notable mostly as a background element, for the wine’s mouth-coating texture, sweet-natured push of flavor and dinner-worthy style keeps them under the radar. Those flavors are harmonious and lingering, and leave a memory of fresh and dried black cherries, black currants, figs, licorice root, clove,peppercorn, molasses, bay leaves and dark earth. Quite delicious now, it should grow in dimension and drink beautifully over the next five to ten years. 35 cases produced.
NVWE Notes: This beauty fans-out an impressively concentrated and forthcoming nose, packed with focused black cherry, red and black currant and sweet dark cherry fruit married to sweet-savory scents of caramel, mocha, dark tobacco, baking spices and star anise. It is bigger and juicier yet on the palate, where sweet cherry, black cherry, blackberry and licorice root take center stage and the other promised aromatic elements make an appearance, along with hints of kalamata olive and peppercorn. The finish is lingering and gutsy, but tannic grip never challenges the intense flavors. It should improve for another five years. A blend of fruit from the Fortuna (57%) Leopoldina (43%) Vineyards. 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petite Verdot, 1% Malbec & 1% Merlot.
