- Varietal Syrah
Cellar Selection. Pungent and spicy, dark and brooding, this wine brings it with deep, sappy berry fruit and overtones of meat and garrigue, all with muscle and verve. Tannins are firm and hard, showing some ripe stem and earth flavors, and plenty of barrel toast. Muscular and warm, this Syrah walks the line perfectly between the Rhone and Barossa.
Ripe and round, delivering a lively mouthful of blueberry, plum, floral, and white pepper flavors that cascade around one another through the long, vivid finish.
Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose combines raspberry, smoked meat, pepper and an ineffable floral quality. Then fat, concentrated and surprisingly dry and classic, with palate-staining flavors of black raspberry, blackberry and pepper. Offers superb breadth with a light touch. This very youthful wine finishes impressively long, with a late note of hard candy.
