    From the Beverage Testing Institute
    Black violet color. Interesting, fruity aromas and flavors of dark chocolate with almonds, cherry confection, raspberry gelee, and apple fritters with a velvety, vibrant, fruity medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long finish that shows impressions of vanilla and sassafras with moderate oak flavor. A well-integrated, fruity Syrah with wide appeal.
