La Bruma Syrah radiates an electric purple hue. The nose is bright with fragrant notes of boysenberries, blackberries, graphite and violets. Really pretty. There is a touch of dark Mission fig underneath the top notes and a sweet bacon edge to the overall aroma. The mouth is elegant and medium-bodied. The bacon fat and berry notes are wrapped in smoky, lead pencil aromas. Without a decant, the palate is tight and compact. The tannins are persistent and silky but not firm or green. After a 45 minute decant a softer and broader mid-palate emerges.
