Rim Rock is ever-constant in its expression of violets – a character of Syrah that is very elusive, and only reveals itself when planted in a great terroir. These delicate floral aromas coalesce with notes of iodine, white pepper and wild blueberry. The wine is restrained but speaks volumes in its subltely––and ultimately concludes with a persistent finish of dusty tannins.
A Kitchen Sink wine featuring; Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Touriga Nacional and Petit Verdot.
Forward, seductive and plush, this opens with a bouquet of blackberry jam, black tea, mint and boysenberry jam. This leads to ripe flavors of black cherry, eucalyptus, red raspberry and coffee grounds.
The wine starts out with a deep ruby color. On the nose, the wine is full of cherry and blackberry fruits, which continue on the palate. What sets this Shiraz apart is the intensity of this ripe fruit, which is just as intense on the finish as when the wine first hits your tongue. The finish has a mineral-graphite edge that balances the fruit nicely. In all, it drinks far, far, above its price point.
Oak spiciness lights up the bouquet and flavors of this full-bodied firmly tannic wine. It's not as heavy in alcohol as some, but is very rich in flavors of black plums and blackberries, black pepper and light oak char, and has a good, grippy texture.
