This 2012 syrah from the ubiquitous and talented winemaker Andrzej Lipinski's virtual winery is made in the appassimento style (he feels that enhancement can benefit a shorter growing season). It is big, full and complex. Bouquet is floral with vanilla, oak, spices, pepper and dark and red fruit. Palate is equally big with spice, black peppery, vanilla and cherry compote. Tannins add some traction and alcohol is present towards the lengthy finish, but decently integrated. Complex. Drinking nicely now (decant 45 minutes) but will cellar mid term. Love the label. 92+. Oct. 2013.
