Colgin IX Estate Syrah 2012
The floral perfume nuance that defines the "IX Estate" Syrah is truly vibrant in the 2012 vintage. Jasmine, orange blossom, nicoise olive and herbes de provence notes captivate the nose. Subtle smoky bacon adds a savory essence to the wine's signature black fruit. The floral, fruit, spice and earth elements are so intertwined that the aroma is seductive and beguiling. The rich tannins are lush and succulent making this a luxurious wine on the palate. The concentration and structure ensure that there is much evolution ahead for this aromatic and opulent wine.
