This is a straight up classic Syrah (or if you wish, “Shiraz”) paying homage to the location in the Middle East where this grape originated. True to form the black crimson color is exhibited similar to the juice of Oregon Marion Berry and those flavors carry through in the big scheme of things. Upfront are the aggressive aromatic smells of overripe blueberries leading to the dark wild berry flavors already described in this review. The finish goes on forever and it is so good you hope it will never end. Right before it is over you get a zing of chocolate mint to tuck you in.
