Deep purple in colour this wine showed elegant berry fruit and a hint of ground black pepper on the nose. The palate is full, smooth and well balanced. Lovely varietal fruit, cigar box characters and a touch of clove. Delicious.
Deep purple in colour this Syrah showed beautiful balance. Medium bodied, I found black cherry, vanilla and a little cracked black pepper on the nose. The palate was rich and full. More berry fruit, sweet oak and a hint of liquorice. Smooth and delicious. Nice long finish.
I was a fan of the '05, and disapointed with this vintage. Muted nose. At first, there's some richness and smokiness on the palate, but then everything disapears, and there is no finish at all. What's there is fine, but there is so little there. Easy to drink, and can't complain for $10, but a huge step down from prior vintages.
