Another Russian Hill Syrah that has aged beautifully. Brilliant deep purple to the rim at age 10 - no sign of amber at the edges. Despite its high alcohol level, it definitely has something of that chiseled French cool-climate personality. Deep, velvety, earthy dark currant and raspberry flavors married with a distinctive edge of barbecue smoke, sweet savory spice, and cedar. Very rich and satisfying in the mouth, beautifully balanced. - HK 2014-03-24
