This iconic Syrah is big and gripping in every sense: a dark, boysenberry and raspberry fruit-infused bouquet; a spicy, deeply flavored palate; a thick and chewy texture with superb strength. Luckily, there's enough acidity and supporting elements of earthy tobacco and wild animal to keep it balanced and lifted enough. Decant if drinking now, or hold for another couple of years.
