Clayhouse Syrah 2011
Aromas of star anise and black licorice mix with sweet violets and dark, ripe raspberry fruit. Flavors of juicy dark raspberry with hints of tricolor pepper and sweet spice fill the mouth. The wine is medium-bodied with mild tannins and good acidity. The tannin and acid keep it elegant in structure, as the fruit flavors ease gracefully into a subtle toastiness with delicate hints of warm vanilla in the finish.
