This was a solid wine. A good spicy/peppery nose with other aromas of raspberry and mixed herbs. A little earthiness in the mouth with flavors of blackberry and black pepper. Medium-bodied with noticeable tannins and a good finish. Would have liked a little more complexity and minerality but a good dinner wine nevertheless.
A straight forward, pleasant, but rather unremarkable Syrah. It takes a couple of hours for this wine to round out, being rather harsh on the finish for the first hour, unfortunately, the fruit diminishes quit a bit by this point – not that it’s in the fore front to begin with, being a bit diminished in quality. I do get some black cherries on the nose, a bit a bit of oak. Overall, there is not point in the time where the wine snaps together.
