. On the palate, the fruit was forward with both cherry and some blueberry flavors along with some subtle white pepper. I also picked up some slight earthy/stoney flavors. Although syrah's are typically full-bodied and bolder wines, this one was medium to full bodied but is well structured with subtle tannins and acidity. Again, the flavors lingered for some time. Overall, another spectacular wine from the Brian Arden Wines. My wife said "they are in a league of their own". What a way to start the new year. These will be tough to follow. As previously mentioned, the Brian Arden Wines are only available in Napa restaurants. Hopefully soon, it will be more readily available. Stay tuned for more details.
