Our Review

A bone-dry young Syrah, this is so soft and briary, with packed flavors of blackberries, currants and chocolate that the wine just seems dull, which makes it very good. But the wine has real elegance, with excellent acidity framing complex flavors of currants and cherries, and the structure is fine but the alcohol is fairly high. A great value, and a very good buy for a '07, at a fair price.
