Following the success of the well-received 2009 vintage of this wine, receiving 93 points from Wine Spectator and named #25 on their Top 100 list, Owen Roe is happy to release the latest edition of this remarkable Syrah.
Notes of pink peppercorn, stewed raspberry, rose petal and baking spices greet the nose. Flavors of bing cherry, white pepper, cedar, eucalyptus and plum create a lasting impression on the palate and are graced by bright acidity and a fine tannin structure.
"A velvety red, offering ripe cherry, licorice and green olive flavors that come together on the firm-textured finish and linger nicely, balancing fruit and savory notes."
"Bright red with ruby highlights. Plush and sweet but sappy too, with a distinctly low-pH mouthfeel to the cool flavors of berries, licorice, flowers and garrigue. Very suave syrah in an approachable style, finishing with restrained sweetness, rather light tannins and very good length."
