A powerhouse of a wine. Not the most complex, but bold, rustic, peppery, and espresso driven Syrahs do not get much better. Also showing notes of smoke, sap, garrigue, juniper, and jerky. sappyA kickass ride, probably excellent with grilled red meats. 91-92.
Dark ruby color turning crimson at the rim with a nose of dark fruits, incense, minerals, iodine, and violets. The palate is full-bodied, well-structured, with a firm texture and lively acidity. Flavors of plum, raspberry, cherry, currant, smoked meat form the core. Very well-made as it shows enough depth and complexity. Finishes with gentle tannins and smoked wood. Drink now until 2025.
Pretty lowkey cuvee bottling. Some decent spices and zesty fruit. WIsh that there could have been more depth to the midpalate and more oomph to the red fruit characters. I wouldn't hold this too long if you have multiple bottles.
