Review

Co-fermented with 5% Viognier, as is typical in all of this producer’s Syrahs, this wine offers a wild, feral intensity on the nose of black pepper, cigar box and leather. From there, it softens with well-defined layers of blueberry and blackberry, the tannins settled and structured, the wine finishing in dusty oak. Editors’ Choice.
