This burly, saturated Syrah hails from a five-year-old vineyard, and it shows some size and potential. The initial aromas seem straight from the barnyard, but that's not a bad thing in this case. Because below that rusticity there's dark fruit and the essence of sauvage. The palate is round, chewy and rich, with blackberry fruit and ample spice. And the finish is tannic and full, to say the least.
