In the glass, this Syrah dominant blend shows a dark purple core that fades into a blueish hue surrounded by dark red edges….
When I stick my nose in the glass I’m hit with ripe raspberries, some toasted oak, and a spicy white pepper kick….
A taste has a mouth coating blueberry start that daydreams its’ way into notes of sweet tobacco and cherry cola ———–> The mid-palate is CHOCK FULL of blackberries and plums before a long and layered ending that is LOADED with mocha and an herbaceous spiciness….
If you’re in the know when it comes to Workman Ayer wines than you understand when I tell you how LIGHTS OUT this thing is…. If you’re not, here is your opportunity to get in the mix with a small producer who is making some STUPID GOOD wines that are priced at half of what they drink at!!!!!
