Still a little too ripe but starting to calm down. (Fingers crossed.)

Third bottle confirmation: Rhys Syrah is somehow too sweet in 2013.

Syrah has been my favorite Rhys varietal but this bottle has too much candied fruit. Anyone else try this yet?

This is one of the best syrah’s being made in California. Violets, dark black and red fruit, hint of smoked meat, and olives. Tastes like a great Northern Rhône.

Dark cherry, plum, violets, olive and smoked meat. Very “Côte Rotie” like in its aromatics. A wine that is constantly changing in the glass. This is good juice!
