Deep colour, rounded nose. Quite a firm concentrated palate – some oak, quite dense. A bit flat on finish.
Saturated deep black-red. Earthy, gruff, with a sense that the oak has slightly constrained the fruit. Deep, lush, voluptuous and full on the palate, though;here the oak seems to fill out and amplify the wine. Resonant, long and searching. I still think the oak is a little too overt, but this is a splendid red wine by any criterion and on the palate is hugely powerful, resonant and long.
Very deep tone. Muted aromas. Rather fresh Syrah, but just spoiled by excessive grip and oak.
