The Benoist Ranch Syrah hosts vivid aromas of blackberries, fresh blueberry jam, bittersweet chocolate and a unique violet floral note. Notes of brown spice and black tea are also noticeable on the nose. The aromas lead to a plush palate where the concentrated black fruit flavors stand out. The wine is dense and well-structured, with smooth tannins and surrounded with juicy fruit leading to an extremely lengthy finish.
This is an incredibly rich and luscious wine filled with inviting aromas of fresh pear, apricot and honeysuckle blossom. The texture of this wine on the palate is lush with sensuous viscosity. The apricot nectar and mandarin orange flavors are well-balanced with vibrant acidity which makes this wine not cloying and very easy to enjoy.
