Slightly grippy tannins, but expected in a brand new Syrah.
Aromas of forest floor, caramel, violets/lavender. Huge, dense, and purple. The super-long fermentation paid off with great extraction yet not at all syrupy or stewed. First class New World Syrah. Winemaker Jeff Gaffner's patience paid off with this one. Recommended - especially after 2 more years + aging.
