Lone Madrone Syrah Paso Robles CA 2018 750ml
The nose is an absolute exotic pleasure. Dark fruits abound, with lovely notes of roasted/toasted hazelnut and peanuts, which I attribute to the Hungarian oak. Succulent notes of cassis, balsamic, and then a bit of mint at the end. On the palate dark fruit of blueberry and ripe plum, with black olive, earth, clay, dried herbs and white pepper.
