Dineen fruit, in a singular vintage, equals spectacular Syrah. This has it all going on—rich, luscious flavors of berries and cherries, wrapped (soaked!) in chocolate, elevated with zippy acidity and smooth and creamy as fresh-churned butter. Seductive doesn't begin to cover it. You could take a bath in this stuff. Yum!
