On my own bad account, I let this great syrah age too much. I bought 1/2 case when released and held on to the last one until now...characteristics of Rosella's slipped a bit...I need to get another 1/2 case of the latest vintage!
Opened and vinturi'd - dark inky wine, nose heavy with meats (seared fat on the bbq) and a little barnyard funk. Taste of ripe dark fruits (plums) hint of chocolate, still some acidity and slight heat on finish. Long lingering finish. Found a bottle for $26, would definitely drink again.
