Summary


This fantastic Syrah is from the Winemaker of The Year and shows a complexity that is rare outside of France. The flavors run through the entire length of the palate, a fascinating mix of herb, leaf, earth, and tightly wound berry fruit. It's vibrant and rustic, though not fleshy, a wine that is a unique combination of masculine and feminine qualities. It should age well for at least a decade.
