Elegant, succulent, balance.
Across the board, Black Hills' wines get better each vintage, this Syrah is no exception.
The aromas are expectedly spicy; black pepper, blackberries, plum, vanilla, mocha and violets atop succulent aromas of smoked meat, dried figs and molasses. The palate is as silky as the nose suggests; fresh wild forest fruit muddled with dried plum, smoked sausage, roasted spices, cocoa...
Overall excellent structure and balance - the freshness here adds levity. Pair: hard cheeses, wild mushroom ravioli, grilled meats, cheese fondue.
