2018 Syrah - Smoky Rose Cellars
What a dark and brooding monster of a Syrah! The deepest purple to almost black in color, one can anticipate the aromas of dried, cured meat, black and blue fruits, and the subtle funk of an olive tapenade. Powerful on the palate, this wine is full-bodied, rich and smooth with all of the purple fruits and flowers plums, blackberries, violets all intertwined with the goodness of what you experienced on the nose. Combine that with a lovely, long finish and this beast turns into quite a beauty.
