Something new for me from one of my favorite wine brands…arriving with a friend for a dinner party!  A very pleasant surprise.

What the Experts say: Rich and generous, the 2015 Syrah South Ridge Vineyard reveals aromas and flavors of smoky black fruit and licorice. It’s medium to full-bodied, supple and open-knit.

What do I think: As mentioned, a very pleasant surprise, to me it was full bodied, smooth, dry, a nice aroma to the nose and unlike most Shiraz / Syrah type wines that leave that empty non finishing feel – this one did nicely!
