This is really good. Almost black with rich purple highlights. Limited fragrance out of the bottle but only 30 minutes in the decanter opens this right up and its delicious. Nose is dark fruit, earth, mushroom and vanilla. On the palate cassis, vanilla, spices, floral notes and an almost creamy finish with some dry tannins but also lasting sweetness and evolving fruit flavours, there’s even some delicate mint tea in there as well. Highly recommended.

A simply delicious Syrah. Lush fruit and sweet tannins. A show stopper. It will age maybe 5 years more imho.

Inky purple color, red fruit nose, raspberries & blackberries with some earth, medium bodied - smoothed out over a few hours of good conversation.
