2006 Amavi Cellars Syrah

This Washington State Syrah is full of deep black fruits on the nose and expresses the fully extracted blackberry and black currants we've come to expect with this variety. There is also a touch of black licorice, molasses, and soil amongst the fruit aroma complex. On the palate this wine is chalk full of black currant, bitter pencil lead, over ripe blackberry,and loads of alcohol on the finish. The heat on the finish coupled with the heavy and bitter tannins make this wine a little tough to handle on it's own. I might soften up in the bottle and I do understand this wine is still very young. Although not my favorite style I still think some will enjoy this wine and I score it 84 points.

Watch me taste this wine live!
