A touch leathery and cooked at first, but with time the bouquet deftly blends saucy, savory Syrah aromas with sun-baked black fruit notes. The palate is saturated and chunky, with aggressive sweet-and-sauvage flavors of grilled meats, spice and burnt brown sugar. Roasted, warm and mildly bitter on the finish. Drink now through 2012.
