This dark, concentrated Syrah is Matetic's signature wine, and this vintage is excellent. An opening salvo of spicy aromas is answered with more subtle forest-herb notes of mint and juniper. This is stout and muscular, with penetrating flavors of black plum, graphite, mint and toast. Raw oak, a vanilla flavor and crisp acidity drive the finish on this ageworthy Syrah. Drink through 2021.
