Very medicine forward / alcohol - too bad as I expected more from the winemaker as a Steadman fan.

Polarizing but a true expression of what it's supposed to be. Power, green, floral, and spice.

Chilean Syrah. I can't get past the vegetal-ness but fruit is there, albeit hard to appreciate under the tomato/red bell/green herb aromas

I was expecting a more complex taste when drinking this wine due to the price. I got hints of black fruits and smoke. The light bodied wine had acidity/tannins that hit the palate.
