I’m finding more and more appreciation for Martinelli’s Syrahs. This is obviously young, and it only spent about 30mins in the decanter before I poured my first glass. Royal purple in the glass. Wonderful aromatics of savory and herbal spices...charcoal embers with bacon fat, accompanied by currant and underripe blackberries. Lifted acidity on the palate giving the profile of this wine the ability to wear its almost 15% ABV well. Dusty dark fruits alongside bayleaf, and pepper dusted cedar. Hold.

Plenty of ripe and stewed red fruits. Smooth tannins.
