Syp passion

"Passion Has Red Lips" 2016

Some Young Punks

Bright purple. Assertive aromas of raspberry liqueur, potpourri and peppery spices are complemented by a suave floral quality. Smooth, sweet and seamless, offering vibrant red fruit and floral pastille flavors that take a darker turn to blackberry with air. Finishes sweet and long, with harmonious tannins and a hint of candied flowers. The image on the label is directly from a classic pulp fiction novel entitled ‘Sin on Wheels. Vegan & vegetarian friendly.

Reviews

  • "88 points. A rustic mix of dried berry flavors and notes of herb, earth and cedar, showing plenty of charm to the white pepper and sage accents that linger. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Drink now through 2027. 5,140 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
