Syrah Sierra Foothills 2012

External Review:

This Syrah reminds me of an Old World Wine. It has a deep color with dark berry aromas combined with spice and mint. It has very concentrated flavors of dark berries which carry to the palate adding layers of cherry, smoke and even leather. This well balanced wine has an abundance of savory type flavors. The wine finishes with a long and lingering finish adding herbal and spicy flavors combined with smoky notes reminiscent of bacon. This is a big wine worthy of aging for several years for optimum quality.

Wine Tasting NotesThe wine has a deep color with intense varietal herbal aromas of rosemary, sage and peppercorn. The flavor begins with dark berry fruit, reminiscent of blackberry jam and continues with a lingering finish of peppercorn, a hint of oak and soft tannins. As the wine stands, the aromas become more fruity, like dark cassis - and meaty, the charred-roast type.
