Sonoma Syrah

​Dried spit and chalkboard vegetal preface a caramel latex balloon stretched tight over drrrrty tertiary boundaries of musk and l’Occitane deodorant jamming sweet grapefruit hard against a working-man’s cornucopia of earth and base fears. Heavy sediment has not contributed to oxidation or flabbiness and toasted peanut-butter & jelly reigns supreme in a forward fruit density fighting off ridiculous shrill tannins with all its might. In a 15YO wine, who will win? I will, that’s who: because I have another half-dozen of these and they are going NOWHERE FAST.
