Wine Review: 2012 Hawks View Cellars Syrah Cellar Series, California
The Hawks View Cellars Syrah started out as one thing and became something different in the glass as do most wines. With all wines when oxygen reaches the liquid, it transforms the flavors, and that transformation continues throughout consumption.
Aromas immediately expose a core of fruit reminiscent of the processing floor at a frozen fruit plant in the middle of berry season. The flavors carry the same berry explosion; many tasters might describe as a fruit-bomb; a style that is becoming more popular with some consumers. Spicy cuisine will pair well with this red wine.
Rating: Good (85) | $45 | 15.0% ABV
