Rideaus on the Storm

A color to stop traffic and a nose to make you re-think concentration and opulence. Pitchy wood and roasted meat, a see-saw grimace of thick oak and kalamata tapenade eucalyptus cheese-whiz, the mouthfeel brings everything back to bright-hot black cherry preserves on a glacial trail to sunrise. A MONSTER syrah, but it goes easy on the thick candied reduction of some SYV “monster syrahs” and instead serves its 15-1 up with sharp dedication to fruit.
