Return to List

Aromas of baked plum and cherry mingle into leather, sun-baked earth and sage in this intensely perfumed Syrah. Bright, bristling black-fruit flavors and firm tannins pierce through the palate, extending into a smoky, mineral finish. It's stunning already but will gain even greater complexity and nuance through 2035. Anna Lee C. Iijima
