Jammy and big, this Syrah is dark and rich, with black currant and plum flavors. It brings me back to my college days when Aussie Shiraz of this style was a mainstay on my table.

An amazing effort, even as a young wine, this Shiraz is fruit forward with blackberry and dark currant tones. Shiraz was once my favorite varietal until the Aussie style changed in the late 1990s to a more thick and sweet style. This more restrained wine may bring me back into the Shiraz fold!

Blackberry sauce, fruit cake, and sweet tobacco. Medium-full body, very smooth but not too spicy. Medium to somewhat full swing of acidity and tannins. Pretty tamed for a Syrah/Shiraz .

Supple & fruit driven reserve shiraz with soft, ripe tannins, paired well with grill Prime NY strip! Pleasant & jammy, not over done. šŸ‘šŸ½

spiciness, light plum and hint of spices. Dry and clear. Good with dark meat. Adventurous flavoring. Iā€™m a fan of the spicy flavor!

Jammy dark fruit, spicy, a bit in the drier side. Tastes South American. Pretty good.

Notes of cherries, blueberries, blackberries. Semi sweet taste with a delectable dryness to it. Somewhat acidic with a nice brightness to it. It is fairly light bodied but has a peppery feel that can transform into a fizzy feeling. This excitement it has towards the end makes it more memorable and enjoyable than other light bodies wines.

Smells like dates and blueberries and oak. Tastes thick with a few flavor depths: the dry creamy juice hits first, then a little tart berry, followed by a clean green wood aftertaste.
