I aerated this after opening.
Dark purple/red color
First thought on smelling this is that it's a Cabernet clone, but, breathing deeper the distinct Syrah qualities become more apparent. Smells of cigar-box cedar, black cherry.
Tastes of plum, black cherry, black pepper, oak, perhaps a bit of bacon. A very enjoyable wine for $14.99. I think this'd suffer if not allowed a bit of air.
