In the glass this Paso Syrah is inky as ALL GET OUT!!! This beaut has a HUGE black-purple core surrounded by glass staining, electric edges….
A sniff starts with dark raspberries and blackberries before dried flowers and spicy cedar wood come out to play….
The palate is luscious, mouth coating, and pure silk…. There’s a blueberry tart note that somersaults into more of the blackberries I got on the nose ————> The mid-palate shows a puff of cigar smoke before black plums, bacon grease, and rhubarb join in on the fun…. The seductive mouthfeel carries WELL into a lasting anise, black cherry, and white pepper ending that’s got me on my knees….
You know what’s awesome!?!?!? A big, luscious, silky, layered, well constructed Syrah and this expression of the variety from Elevage Wines checks EVERY SINGLE ONE of those boxes ———–> Get on this winery early as quantities are tiny and quality is BIG!!!! 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with something big, soulful, and silky smooth like Leon Bridges – Smooth Sailin’
