Winemaker's Notes

This is probably the wine most approachable wine right now as the pepper and meaty aromas jump out of the glass – the most "old world" wine in the Margerum Syrah stable – and, no, stable not a barn metaphor.

Critical Acclaim

"Gains depth and complexity with each sip. Rich and intense, offering ripe, spicy black cherry and wild berry fruit that has a touch of plum jam. This has excellent length, ending with firm, ripe tannins. Drink now through 2012. 200 cases made."
93 Points

"Deep red. Classic syrah aromas of cassis, cherry skin, smoked meat, cracked pepper and pungent flowers. Deep, youthfully bitter dark berry flavors gain sweetness with air, picking up firm tannins and an exotic note of candied licorice. The cassis and floral qualities repeat and linger on a long, sappy finish."
90 Points
