WA 92 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - "An interesting mix of 73% Syrah and 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2012 Savant sports an inky purple color to go with outstanding notes of blackberry and plum-styled fruit, wild herbs and leather. This gives way to a full-bodied, thrillingly pure red that has building tannin, solid mid-palate depth and a textured, seamless style that-s hard to resist. It's a big, rich and fruit-filled effort to enjoy over the coming 7-8 years."
Tasting Notes - "Opaque dark core with a medium purple rim and high viscosity. Ripe blackberry and boysenberry jam fruit with smoky meaty notes, leather, cracked black pepper, vanilla, and cedar. Intense and very complex with blackberry jam, black cherry, cassis, vanilla, cedar, cracked pepper, and smoked meat on the entry. The mid-palate shows dark chocolate and savory elements mixed with the lingering fruit core. Herb, cedar, and pencil lead notes appear on a very long finish with a halo of cherry and berry fruit, and mouth filling tannins that balance this bold wine." 70% Syrah 21% Cabernet Sauvignon 9% Petite Sirah. 15% ABV.
