From the bottle:
"I smell with one nose, an ancient black rose, a memory lingering, briefly exposed. I see with two eyes, through shadows and lies, a secret revealing, wrapped in disguise. I hear with my ears, three fallen tears, echoing softly, heightening my fears. I taste with my tongue, my panics begun, four sides enclosed, melding as one. I touch with my hands, a sinister plan, five fingers discerning where I do stand. I sense with my mind, a thought so unkind, I'm trapped six feet under in a bottle of wine.
The 2010 Michael David Winery 6th Sense Syrah begins with an amazing, intoxicating aroma of violets, spice, dark fruit, vanilla, mint and even some bacon. Yes, bacon. Do I have your attention now? Good, because this wine sure has mine. Tasting reveals a big, juicy wine that explodes with big jammy flavors. In addition to the fruit you'll find oaky spice, coffee, a little mocha and licorice wrapped up in a silky texture. It's 15.5% alcohol, but you'd never guess it. The very long, dry finish features more dark fruit and oaky spice plus lingering tobacco notes.
