2017 Carlisle Syrah James Berry Vineyard

Dark red at core, fading to the edges. Dark plums on the nose. Soft on the palate, blackberries, bit of roasted meat. Fine tannins, nice acidity and balance. Finishes long with spice and red fruits. Becomes pleasanter with more pronounced red fruit with air. Nice, not great, I expected more. Drink over the next 5 to 6 years. "B+"
