Tasting Notes Details

Esk Valley

Syrah - 2014

Spicy,, smoky, interesting nose that's not just primary fruit. The dark berry fruit, though, is coulis-like in intensity. Supple in the mid palate but the finish is taut - a result of firm acidity and youthful uptight tannins. Give it time and it'll mellow.

89/100
