Saturated dark ruby. Port-like ripeness to the aromas of black cherry, licorice, clove and violet. Suave on entry, then quite savory in the middle, with lightly saline flavors of black fruits, licorice and chocolate lifted by slightly elevated acidity. This seamless, concentrated syrah finishes with dusty, ripe, chocolatey tannins that call for a year or two of patience.

Dense and focused, with plush black cherry and roasted red pepper flavors, lingering on the velvety finish.

The rich and ripe character shows aromas and flavors of black cherry, caramel, smoky earth, boysenberry, leather, cocoa, dried cherry and toasty espresso notes. It is a fine pairing with rich foods, especially beef and hearth sauces

Bright ruby. Pure but reticent aromas of blackberry, violet, licorice, clove oil and tropical dark chocolate. Sweet, pliant and seamless, with concentrated dark berry, floral and licorice flavors dominating. Not a meaty or extravagant style of syrah, but dense and fine-grained. I like the oak treatment here (all new French and American barriques for 20 months). Finishes with smooth tannins. Enjoy this now or hold it for more complexity.

It is so dark it will make your lips look bruised, and so densely flavored your taste buds will start to buzz. Layered on top of Syrah’s expected red and black fruit flavors are intriguing notes of smoke and a deep, grainy-syrupy (but not sweet) hint of molasses. Although Ethos seems ideally suited for complex meaty fare such as beef stews and the like, someone served it to me recently with rotisserie chicken. Somewhat to my surprise, the wine pretty much held its own with the bird--which was, admittedly, a very nicely seasoned and roasted morsel of fowl. But had the wine truly overpowered the dish, I might have simply pushed the chicken aside and continued lapping up the scrumptious Syrah.
