Dark isn’t the word – maybe inky, almost opaque. A cookie jar nose tempts with sweet aroma of brown sugar and graham cracker. This hefty red coats the mouth with rich, full flavors of pomegranate, red fruit and a bit of red licorice. This is a robust wine, full-bodied with persistent forward fruit and great length, braced by firm tannins and ending with spice and cedar notes. This is a great example of why Walla Walla has a reputation for producing killer Syrahs. This wine will cellar for several years, but why wait? Pass the chocolate please.
