Boysenberry scone with vanilla.
A delicious nose.

Full flavoured, berry blend, mediums bodied, vanilla edges and citrus overtones. Smooth, and perfectly aged.
Pepper shows itself after some airtime.

An Eric Solomon selection.

Evenly concentrated, reflective, translucent garnet red with blue hues. Restrained aroma but complex and ripe; saline, violet, pine, raspberry, coconut and bacon. Medium body, medium acid, low astringency, high prickly heat 14.5%. Flavors are quiet on the palate, Black pepper and alcohol dominate. $16

Not quite the 94RP that stands on the sticker but say a solid 89p to me. Concentration but not by any means heavy or lacking structure. Bit flat and lacking complexity to be a excellent but worked great with flank steak. Has stuffing to improve so I'd wait 1-2 years to see how it develops. Good qpr.

Fantastic value. On the lighter side of Syrah but easy to drink and paired with multiple food options easily.

Fantastic value. Expressive nose, dark fruit driven, layers of blackberries, liquorice, raspberries. Good body and fine finish, mouthfilling.

@Rick Zywotko thanks for the recommendation here. @$14 this is an incredible value. Advocate says 94 and if taking into account the QPR, i agree. Needs a little time but nearly pnp. Complex and layered with chocolatey tannins, dark red fruits all wrapped up in a velvety mouthfeel. $14! Glad we have a bunch more of these waiting.

Really avoid overripe RP Syrahs lately but this one had beauty and balance. Great with spicy lamb. Value!
