Opulent, ripe fruit aromas of blackberry jam, cherry and fig mingle with toasted oak accents of dark toffee and chocolate. Smooth entry onto a full-bodied palate showcases rich, structured tannins and just enough acid for balance. Intriguing, complex flavors range from blackberry pie and candied cherries to orange peel and dark chocolate which highlight the added value of new oak. A full-bodied, long finish is carried by structured tannins complemented with juicy acid. This may be the smoothest, most balanced vintage of Sundown Syrah to date.
