Once you cut through the heavy, minty oak, there's a decent wine hiding in the folds. The body carries reasonably ripe black cherry and raspberry flavors as well as plenty of wood-generated tannin, but does it taste much like Syrah? I find it more generic and woody than varietal. Imported by Excelsior Wine & Spirits.
