Punching massively above its weight. Think a Cayuse Syrah but ever so slightly leaner. Tangy berry laser beam, never straying from the edge of tart or fruit, but dancing between nonetheless. Drink up, as the tannins’ feet are aching...

Complex for a Syrah, satiny, beautiful on the nose with a nice finish. Everything a Syrah should be.

High alcohol but still seems to be in balance. Dark berries and intense acidity.

High alcohol, high extraction, overly ripe fruit. Disappointing.

This is Syrah! Everything about this is so very nice right now. Dangerously easy to drink. Lots of rich, dark fruit, iron, bacon fat, smoke, petrol; alcohol at 15.4% but very much in control; would love another bottle.

Funky nose. It's too young, but we double decanted through a Menu Decanter. Opening right up.
