Complex from start to finish, beginning with aromas of smoke, kumquats and grilled pears and ending cleanly, with tart pineapple notes. The texture is a compelling mix of gravel and custard, yet the wine never seems heavy.
The very ripe and sweet cherry aromas and flavors bear handsome notes of tarragon and smoke. Full and round on the palate, this wine displays a lengthy finish with dark cherry, bitter-chocolate and herb flavors. Quite appealing now and very easy to get comfy with.
An interesting contrast to many of the other Hawke’s Bay Syrahs, this one features red raspberries, white pepper and hints of rhubarb. It’s a brighter, fruit-driven style, but one that features a reasonably plump texture and a mouthwatering finish. Imported by Southern Starz.
