The Big Basin Rattlesnake Rock Syrah 2012 shows bright notes of fruits and florals. The nose is full of intense aromas of lavender and crushed violets. You may feel like you’re strolling through a sun-drenched field of wildflowers. The palate is a savory complement to these enchanting aromas, with flavors of juicy red and black fruits, freshly cracked black pepper, and a hint of smoky cured meats. The interplay between rich flavors and light aromas is enticing and will have you taking another sip (and another).
