2012 Estate Syrah
Syrah comes in many shapes and styles, from jammy and fruity to the other extreme of earthy and lean. This Syrah splits the difference, with a vibrant spiciness that is contrasted with a ripeness and depth that gives the wine a few different layers of character. Subtle notes of black coffee and 85% dark chocolate lurk in the background. After an hour of decanting expect to notice a creamier texture with more apparent notes of vanilla and cinnamon.
