Eucaberry may be too simplistic but - the Australian character here is obvious but fun in a obvious way big abv 14.5% by volume

Might be weird to say about a 6 year old Syrah in a screwcap, but I think this wine was a year or two over it's peak. Still complex just not as much power that comes with youth.

Big and broad, chewy tannins, ripe lush, rich berries with bigger spice and wonderful florals that should be heaven in another 7-8 years.
