Cassis, cocoa and savory spice scents backed by whisps of toasty oak. Scents transition to the substantial palate nicely joined by fine minerals, black tea and a crisp, orange-laced acidity that carries through the dry finish. Damn delicious Cab, and a steal for $14.99.
I love it when the first smell of a wine gives me goosebumps. I think it speaks to the wines balance, and I know it’s going to be good. Seamless scents of black fruits, rainwater, minerals, cocoa, smoke and an underlying glycerin; gorgeous. Black and blueberries rush the palate but are checked by crisp minerals and a taught acidity. Toasty espresso and dark chocolate flavors carry into the extravagant, dry finish with orange zest and tea laced minerals lingering. Fuck, I love Syrah. Cabernet is easy to love; Syrah seduces you. This has 5% Grenache in the blend. Enjoy. And thank you Mike MacMorran for making this beauty. $34.99
