Product Description

Tight upon uncorking, the Estate Syrah slowly emerges with hints of vanilla and coco powder framed by spicy oak that gives way to deep dark floral accents. Once decanted or permitted time to breathe, the Estate Syrah develops dark cassis and licorice notes with hints of mocha. A beautiful wine, which perfectly balances fruit, spice, and oak. As with the aromas, the flavors of this wine remain hidden until developed through exposure to air. Starting with dark fruit flavors of Cassis and dried black fruit, a mocha and dark chocolate layer emerges and melds with these fruit flavors providing deep, mouth filling flavors. Full of soft, chewy tannins, the fruit characters are enhanced by a moderate licorice and herbal spice which carry through the long mid-palette to a lingering finish.
