Much like the last edition it opens with reduced, meaty, peppery, syrah notes with bits of sagebrush and tobacco. The attack is soft and round with light, sweet red and black cherry fruit with more smoky, savoury sagebrush and tobacco leaf flavours. Easy-sipping but not a lot of complexity. Drink now with barbecue fare.
