They always say never judge a book by it’s cover, however with a vineyard name like Black Oak - nothing could be authentic to the wine’s contents. Fragrant Lavender, rosemary pepper, leather and graphite dominates the nose. Sweet vanilla roast bouquet follows. Enticing game flavors persist on the tongue and a firm mouthfeel and great length. Definitely a darker expression of Syrah, staying true to its vineyard name.
