2018 Syrah Estate
The 2018 Syrah gives you a lot to think about, with its deep, dark purple color in the glass and initial multilayered aromatic attack of just about every kind of spicy thing you can imagine –incense sticks, black pepper, licorice, violets and something meaty like marinated lamb. With some coaxing the fruit aromas come out, bringing spiced plum, currant and blackberry jam. Now sip and feel the gathering tension on the palate, and flavors of plum, cherry and blackberry laced with vanilla and hints of mocha and walnut bringing you to the well-balanced and mouth-watering spicy finish. Feel it linger, and imagine serving up a slow-roasted pork shoulder with black pepper and cumin.
