2005 Estate Syrah

No Longer Available

Tasting Notes

Enticing aromas of black licorice, cherry, truffle, and clove greet you in this old-world-style Syrah.  Its velvet finish displays smooth tannins along with flavors of smoke, roasted meat, and ripe blackberries.  A great wine to pair with spicy Asian cuisine or roasted lamb.
