Wine Review: Old World fans might want to try this syrah from South Africa. This dark maroon wine opens with an aromatic spicy cedar bouquet. On the palate, this medium to full bodied wine is round and had some acidity. It has flavors of black current and anise with hints of dark chocolate and oak. The finish is dry and tingles for a little while with dusty smoky tannins. This wine would match well with meatloaf and appeal to Old World fans. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Dark color with hints of mocha and spice flavors. Has typical Syrah notes of pepper, dark fruits and a fine tannin structure well integrated with the oak.
Organic status: not organic
