White Oak Napa Valley Syrah 2009
Black fruit, mocha and roasted hazelnut aromas leap from the glass and promise a full body wine which tastes of blackberry and white pepper that are supported by firm tannins. This leads to a lengthy finish of dark fruit and integrated oak.
There'a soft sweetness to this wine that makes it immediately drinkable. The flavors are suggestive of ripe red cherry, red licorice, red currant liqueur, mocha and sweet oak.
