Canon del Sol Red Table Wine Columbia Valley 2005

Syrah is predominant on the nose with a light smokiness, some gamey notes, and spice. A very smooth taste with a touch of vanilla and spice. Syrah also stands out on the taste with Malbec adding spice at the backend. Ever so slightly heavier on the oak on the taste than I care for. Still, overall a very enjoyable wine. Blend of Syrah, Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec.
