Colgin IX Estate Syrah 2014
The 2014 “IX Estate” Syrah is a rich, sumptuous blend of old world and new world. Its perfume has an enticingly seductive lift of tangerine that is complemented by aromas of dark chocolate, dried flowers, and white pepper. Saline notes of oyster shell and tapenade weave together with iron mineral notes from the “IX Estate” volcanic soils. Flavors of grilled steak fat, cured meats, and blackberry cobbler lead to a melting and succulent texture on entry. The palate is coated with an exceptionally smooth tannin that is dense and deeply layered.
