A little soapy on the nose, with air freshener, cherry candy and soft berry aromas. The palate follows what the nose offers with richness and soft tannins along with blackberry and blueberry flavors. Not very spicy for a Syrah; it's more of a baked, toasty, generic red wine that tastes good but isn't complex or varietal in nature.
