Spice Route 2000 Flagship Syrah (Swartland)

Very tart berry Syrah fruit with espresso, tar and clove accents struggles against overbearing earthiness. The funky element sometimes called South African terroir, which variously appears as iodine, vitamin, metal, or dung, can work in modest doses, just as barnyardiness can in Burgundy. But not to this degree.
