Deep ruby in color, the 2015 Austin Hope Syrah showcases beautiful ripe black cherry, cassis and blackberry liqueur aromas, accented by notes of dried violets and an earthy, freshly-tilled soil character. Layers of white pepper, smoke and leather are accented by a mocha-caramel sweetness. On the palate, the wine is a little more restrained than previous vintages, balancing youthful, gripping tannins with a medium-full body that highlights the ripe fruit notes. The acid is perfectly integrated and balances the wine as the fruit subsides, leading to a long, oak driven finish.
