This Syrah has a deep red color with purple tints. Its aromas and flavors reminds on one side of leather, pepper, coffee and chocolate, without stopping the fruitiness at the same time, showing off cherry jam, black fruits and subtle mentholated hints. A wine with concentration, rounded tannins and a balanced and complex finish.
It is recommended to decant first and take to 64°F before serving. Recommended to accompany red meat, duck, dishes with sweet and sour sauces and mature and smoked cheese.
"Like the juice of fresh, tart blackberries, this wine has a fruity sensation that keeps it lively. Spicy notes develop as well as meaty flavors, but the fruit continues to power through the wine, youthful and very seductive."
Wine & Spirits
"Rock-solid, with a muscular core of blackberry, black cherry and licorice liberally laced with briar and spice. The finish is grippy, but stays accessible overall."
"Purple in color, with big, grapy aromas that fold in meatiness, warmth and power. The palate is a jammy blast of concentrated black fruit, herbs and lighter citrus along the edges. Lush on the back side, and probably more bold and forceful as opposed to refined or elegant. Drink now through 2012."
