this is a great Syrah from Russian River. not overbearing. smooth even tannins. i like the jam and blue/blackberry references here..and a nice vanilla on top just about great!
Dark, purple, almost inky color is followed by aromas of cedar, tobacco, blueberry, blackberry, bramble, pie, toasty smoky oak and game meat. This wine enters the mouth softly with large quantities of dark fruit, black currant and blackberry. On the mid-palate it brings flavors of smoky char and tannins bursting with opulent fruit notes and layers of barrel flavor. This is not a fruit bomb from Down Under or an earthy expression from the Old World. This is California Syrah. An intense and deep wine with beautiful fruit, backed with adequate cooperage to elevate and lengthen the feeling as it crosses your tongue. Another treasure from Limerick Lane not to be missed. LL.
Peppery, spicy. Hot!
