Perfectly good for the price, with a dark, smoky outlook and masculine aromas of mocha, roasted berry and violet. Like you'd expect for New World Syrah, it's intense but not aggressive, and the mix of plum, berry, cocoa and toast flavors give it amplitude and attitude. Well-made for a large-production wine (140,000 cases).
