The wine has a very deep ruby color with aromas of black plums, pomegranate, spice, and smoked duck. It is fully ripe and concentrated. The flavors are intense and mouth filling matching the aromas. Nice layering and a big ripe expression of this gorgeous variety. The blend comes from the Barrett Vineyards Syrah as well as another favorite Syrah vineyard north of St. Helena. Produced by Heidi Barrett, the world foremost wine maker.
