The 2011 Syrah is rich and round with a creamy nose. There are light notes of licorice and white pepper but the black fruit characteristic is dominant. The initial expression across the palate is one of fresh fruit but is followed by flavors of blackberry, creamy minerality and lovely tannins. It is ready to enjoy now but with the aging on new American oak, it will continue to develop beautifully in the bottle.
