Stocky plum and smashed-berry aromas offer notes of garrigue and wild animal. As for mouthfeel, this Syrah is layered, chewy and pulpy, with power in reserve. Deep berry and cassis flavors are darkened by toast and spice notes, while the finish is long, spicy and only builds in fruit. Drink through 2022.
