2009 Oregon Syrah

PDF Version

Toasted wood, caramel, and vanilla provide the back notes to a redolent, complex nose of red fruit, cherry liqueur, sweet leather, pepper, and roasted meats.

Rich, dark fruit, baking spice, and vanilla nuances on the palate lead to a long finish of sweet tobacco and fine, balanced tannins.
