Travelled well since we bought this at the winery last year and schlepped it to south florida. We had Parred with Lamb .good choice. Medium body , rounded comforting on the pallet. Tasted great from first to last glass.
15.0% - Clear and slightly hazy on the rim, deep ruby / clean, med+ intensity, jammed blackberry, pepper, chocolate, some smoke / dry, med- acidity, full body, med+ tannin, med+ intensity, med length. This is a bit out of balance as it lacks acidity. Straight after pouring in tasting glass, this bottle was great on the nose with syrah typicity and pretty nice on the palate if it could have some more acidity (would range 86-88). However, I decided to decant it as this is a big one made in the new world style and it was quite powerful. But then as the wine got closer to room temperature (1st glass poured at +/- 15C) it completely shut down with only this heat from that high alcohol % which made it kind of flabby... Quite disappointing as I truly enjoyed the 1st glass and had high expections.
