"Deep violet. Heady smoke- and mineral-accented cherry and cassis scents are complemented by suggestions of pipe tobacco, violet and Indian spices. Silky and deeply concentrated yet lively, offering sweet dark berry, cherry compote and floral pastille flavors lifted and sharpened by juicy acidity. Alluringly sweet and pure, finishing with excellent clarity and slow-building, fine-grained tannins. Distinctly Rhône-like in character and balanced to age."

"Deep garnet colored, the 2013 gargantua Oregon Syrah has a pepper and spice perfume of cloves, anise and cracked black pepper over a core of black cherries and plums plus waft of roses and garrigue. Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with elegant black berry and spice flavors supported by rounded tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing with an herbal lift."
