(a barrel selection that McCrea describes as the pick of the litter) Bright red-ruby. Superripe aromas of grenache-like candied black cherry complicated by grass and fresh herbs. Fat and sweet but less obvious than the Boushey syrah, with a bit more structure to go with its full ripeness. This is quite different in shape and finishes with very good subtle length. I'd put this one in the cellar for a couple years before pulling the cork.
