93pointsBoekenhoutskloof 2013 Cape Winemakers Guild Auction Reserve Syrah (Coastal Region)

Winemaker: Marc Kent. This is a beautiful, layered and elegant Syrah, from a winemaker that knows how to treat it right. The bouquet is floral upfront, with assertive notes of violet, Iris, fynbos and rooibos taking centerstage to the red cherry and plum fruit core. Accents of black pepper, Thin Mint and wild herbs add depth to the medium-weight palate. The texture is smooth and easy, with medium tannins and ample acidity that carry through the long finish. It's certainly approachable now, but should continue to evolve well through 2024. Lauren Buzzeo
