    Winemaker's Notes:

    "The wild one" - Powerful and full bodied with concentrated flavours of black pepper, raspberry, mulberry and liquorice. The porcupine Syrah has a long finish with a bitter chocolate aftertaste.

    Critical Acclaim:

    his Syrah has a rustic but elegant nature: aromas of raspberry, black pepper, smoked sausage and cloves prevail, while full-bodied but integrated flavors of anise, pepper and berry follow. The wine is robust but has a velvety character and a spicy finish.

    Bright deep red. Dark raspberry, pepper, caramel, woodsmoke and mocha on the nose, plus an exotic whiff of spicecake: very syrah. Then lush, chocolatey and easygoing, with an attractive sweetness to the middle palate. Finishes with dusty tannins and a note of woodsy soba broth. A lot of syrah for $13.
