In the glass, this Paso Syrah has a black-night sky center with electric purple edges and a translucent halo….
A sniff’ll knock you out of your chair with a hit of raspberry perfume, loads of black cherries, and a black licorice thing that I’m diggin’…..
The wine starts light on the palate with cranberries and mesquite smoke before the mid-palate takes a walk on the WILD side with puréed blackberries and dark chocolate…. The ending is ALL KINDS of greasy dark meat game, black pepper spice, and black currant with looong luscious tannins……
Hug Cellars is legit. Augie created something of a legacy and Edgar is doing the brand NO disservice! I’ve been a fan, I am a fan, and I’ll always be a fan ——-> Join me, won’t you!?
