The fruit is a bit tempered with age but still a very smooth syrah
Big & Bold
I thought this wine was good, but expected more with a 94 rating. Maybe it was because it was a Syrah/Shiraz mix and I'm a big fan of cabernet sauvignon.
My wife HATED this when it opened. I was able to push myself through a couple of glasses, but we didn't give it out for Christmas as gifts as we intended to do. The Amerique version is much better. That said, I may change this review when the wine's had another year or two on the shelf. Just not worth drinking now - I think it's over oaked for the grape, but I don't know whether that's the taste we were getting out of it.
