On the nose there are waxy aromas of gardenia and leather leading to an alluringly ripe mid-palate consisting of creamy black and blue fruits. The style reminds me of the SCHOLIUM Project 2003 ISEULT Syrah from Hudson Vineyard (94 points, WSC 9).

Dark garnet in color with purple highlights, this wine has a classic cool climate syrah nose of blueberry, blackberry and white pepper. In the mouth it is a gorgeously pure expression of blueberry and blackberry bramble, that is very satisfying, lightly grippy, green tannins and all. Not many decent Syrahs are made from Carneros and this must certainly be one of the better ones.
