Expect an intriguing medley of fruit and spice flavors in the Big Basin Old Corral Syrah 2012. The nose shows enticing aromas of pepper, perfumed lavender, and anise. The palate has lush layers of fruit and spice. Black and white pepper, dark purple fruits, lavender, iron, granite, tobacco, smoke, and stone cascade across the mouth. This is a wonderfully unique collection of flavors, which will make this wine an enjoyable bottle to share with your dinner guests. It will pair nicely with barbecued beef ribs or smoked chicken.
