The 2016 Gliss Cellars Syrah begins with lots of ripe, dark fruit and a little black pepper. It's a tad meaty just as you would expect with Syrah and it's quite pleasing.
Taking a sip of the wine reveals lots of tasty dark berry fruit and nice touches of spice with cola and licorice throughout. This is a solid Syrah for just $7.
Hints of vanilla lead into the dry, surprisingly long finish. It's not extremely complex but it's a solid example of the variety at this extremely low price.
