Syrah

This brooding suit of lights will beguile you with a swaying muleta of dark garnet, ruby and blue-hued mahogany scented with Parma violets dipped in chocolate, blood orange peel, iodine rubbed leather, musk, and all fully integrated within a panoply of sun-herbs laced with pungent black pepper. The irresistible dry-sweet structure will temp your tongue to fill your mouth with oodles of dried plums wrapped in mordacious rosemary. Here you have all of the sweat, blood-thrill and verve of a Córdoban corrida whirling with dust and loud cries of olé rising up from your tonsils in the late afternoon sun. Very macho, indeed!
