02 K Vintners, The Beautiful Syrah

Lusty violets, black pepper, cranberries, and plums. This powerful compote picks up an increasing presence from the oak, growing more chocolatey and toasty by the minute. Exquisite acid and tannins; impeccable structure. A subtle gaminess distinct to K wines, behind truckloads of fruit, makes me think of BBQ turkey. Rhone meets Australia. I hate to be corny, but this wine couldn't have a more fitting name. It is beautiful -- and I am more beautiful because of it.
