DMZ is De Morgenzon's value label, where the objective is to produce classic, elegant, well-balanced wines which over-deliver in terms of quality for price. The nose of this round, elegant Syrah flaunts enticing aromas of ripe berries and red plum with delicate floral notes. Juicy layers of rich, vibrant berry fruit unfold on the palate, backed by hints of pepper, cinnamon and vanilla.
"Bright red-ruby. Mulberry, dark cherry, licorice, wild herbs, chocolate and a whiff of game on the nose. Lush and deep but not at all heavy, with sexy, varietally accurate flavors of dark berries and smoked meat. This really expands and gains in sweetness toward the back. The broad finish features substantial ripe tannins. A mouthful of syrah for the price. Incidentally, with this vintage the variety on the label was changed from shiraz to syrah, which is much more reflective of the wine's style."
