I absolutely LOVE this ink, which does look like syrah. I almost always have one pen loaded with it (usually a Vanishing Point with F nib), because writing with it is a little pleasure to break up the day's stress.

It's more complimented by people who see it than all of my other inks combined.

But it does often make me want to pour a glass of wine. heh

This is a good "basic brown", perhaps more interesting for calligraphy than for daily use, but quite functional all around.

Although I generally prefer inks that just pop off the page at me, I intend to keep a bottle of this around as my default brown. Sometimes you just want brown, right?

I bought this looking for a "black" ink that would really stand out, and it's a definite favourite so far.

Blacks that dry to a grey just don't please me, but this remains satisfyingly dark. When I'm feeling creative, I can get it to show a bit of purple, which I personally love.

I like this one for daily use with a Lamy 1.9 italic nib, but it performs well even with finer nibs (all the way down to hair lines with dip pens).
