2010 Chateau St. Jean Syrah Benoist Ranch Sonoma Coast
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.
