A very dark red hue
A well of inky darkness, I love the violet florals, the fennel seed and the spice, led by pepper and clove, a playful and eager to please cool-climate syrah nose!
Plush fruit bomb like entry, but quickly remembering itself, turns elegant and suave, showcasing super fine ripe tannins down the middle and through the finish. Certainly fruit soaked and delicious but plenty in the personality stakes too, real depth and poise.
Hard to not drink now but cellar with confidence for 10 years.
