Mills Reef 1999 Mere Road Vineyard Syrah (Hawke's Bay)

Dark cherry, leather and coffee aromas lead into more of the same flavors on the palate. Medium-weight with moderate tannins, this New Zealand Syrah could almost be mistaken for a Crozes-Hermitage. It finishes with dry mineral and pepper flavors. It's lean and structured, and would benefit from 2–3 years of cellaring.
