This young, dense syrah has a lifted if somewhat blunt nose of black cherry, lots of wood smoke, pepper and alcohol....

Opaque ruby with a purple tinge in colour with a medium intense nose.

A solid Syrah for under $25

Positives: This wine features cedar, dark cherry, plums, black and red peppers, sage, thyme, cloves, cinnamon and some menthol on the finish. Full body with medium+ tannins, good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: There’s some heat coming from this wine that I suspect may be higher alcohol than the stated 14%.

Interesting Point: The wine comes from Syrah vines from France over a century ago.

Drink now or in the next 5 years on its own or pair it with Patagonian Lomo Asado

Tasted: 20 Nov 2013

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 8.5+/10 Total: 17.5/20
