Fenaughty Syrah - Tasting the wine as it ferments

The Fenaughty Syrah (15 Brix) just looks and smells too good at this point to wait for the finished product before tasting. So, we won't. The nose itself is very potent and earthy, and almost knocks you on your feet. The sweetness of the grape softens the otherwise grassy or tree bark aroma. The initial taste is also earthy, but quickly smooths out, leaving a lingering flavor of tart, sweet cherry. At this point, the wine would nicely complement a hearty rack of lamb, or even a blueberry pie!
