The nose was massive and rich with blackberry jam, vanilla, mocha and spicy cookie. On the palate, it was velvety smooth with low acidity, showing black fruit, pepper and inner floral notes. The finish was clean with lingering spiced cherry and herbs.
I poured myself a glass and let it sit for a while. When I returned, the wine had started to open up. Unlike the Caligiore Syrah, the Luigi Bosca had obvious and prominent vanilla oak aromas that rose up before the plums and berries. It is a bit perfume-like. The taste was more peppery, with dark berries and lots of mocha. While the Caligiores’ tannins were restrained, this wine had grippy tannins offset by good acidity and a ripe sweetness.

Lush and full-bodied, this has a hint of spice and barnyard to its purple Syrah fruit.
