Intense wild berry and pomegranate fruit anchors a spicy, balanced, ageworthy Syrah with notes of Provençal herbs. Tart and still quite young, it is already nicely melded together. Spicy/herbal/peppery aromas show just a hint of a green edge, leading into the characteristic Boushey aromatics of violets, with notes of earth and truffle and ground coffee.
