Whispers of smoke and bacon fat mingle into ripe but elegantly restrained cassis and black plum on the nose of this finessed Syrah. In its youth, it's vibrantly fruity, edged by an exhilarating vein of acidity and lingering hints of black pepper. Approachable already for its fine, feathery tannins, the wine should gain earthier complexity and perfume well through 2035.
