Get Back Jack

Dark ruby with wide amber edges.  Big caramel cassis dark chocolate decadent fruit teetering on the edge of overt ripeness  Warm and alcoholic smelling, it is clear this thing is a big sweet bish.  Have been drinking a fair amount of Blackjack since moving to the Central Coast, and had the 2007 Double Down Syrah on several occasions recently and it is headed down the hill rapidly and all of its ills are visible in this 2009, they are just not forefront yet.  In the mouth, spicy and bright, packed with black cherry, chewing tobacco and wet tree bark.  Heavy-handed, but with enough going on to offset the flabbiness.  Liking this quite a bit right now.  Drinking perfectly and a fine–although RIPE–version of SB SY.
