Composed of Syrah, Petite Sirah and Souzao, the 2018 showing of Freakshow Red unveils aromas of ripe plum, espresso and salted caramel on the nose. Medium in body, flavors of crushed summer berries, sweet tobacco and allspice are carried through by a lengthy, guided finish
Aromas of ripe black fruit including purple plum, blackberry, and black cherry intertwine with herbal tea, oregano, white pepper, and cinnamon on the nose. The same black fruit and spicy/herbal notes follow on the palate coupled with black licorice, toasty oak, tar, cigar box, and cocoa nibs
I enjoyed this bottle with good friends alongside homemade pasta with Bolognese sauce. Thanks KS and CS!
