Huge dense blackberry and blueberry. More acid than expected which perfectly cuts through the juicy lamb we had, allowing the black pepper and distinctive salty olive quality to shine. Some carnal smoke. Very complex wine for the money.

Дурацкая молочка и специи, как прямо, когда хотят "сделать хорошо", но при этом совершенно фантастическое послевкусие варенья из ревня. Помимо этого в носе сильно жаренный бекон, резина, табак. Потом все успокаивается и проявляется черника. Во вкусе карамель, черноплодка, лакрица, ваниль. Передубленность остается и уходит только на второй день.
Странная штука в новотсветском стиле. По структуре и балансу хорошо, но что касается ароматов и нот во вкусе, есть вопросы.

Hello Syrah! Let's start with a great package and move on to substance: This is a textbook Syrah - pure simple! nose: fresh blackberry and licorice, color: velvet lush in a glass. Low on tannins, great finesse. Mine is the 2013. Cheers!

Big bold boisterous bottle of bombastic berry-flavored juice! The high end line of these wines are really solid value. I rather have this than prisoner any day. @KickAssWaWine
