The 2011 Syrah Obsidian Vineyard is medium garnet colored and scented of liquid licorice, plum pudding and blackberry preserves with nuances of garrigue, underbrush and smoked bacon plus a hint of tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with a taut structure of firm, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness to support the earthy layers, finishing long and savory.
