Wine Review: This really nice South African Syrah is a clear deep purple color and has smoky spice, brambly raspberry, cherry and a hint of violets in the bouquet. It has a concentrated medium plus body, and is dry and balanced, with crisp acidity. On entry it is slightly smoky with flavors of plum, blackberry, black pepper, clove and mild oak. The medium tannins are dusty and the finish lasts a long time. Enjoy BBQ pork shoulder with a glass of this Syrah. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: Deep, purple core. Rich, berry fruit nose with lots of ripe, red plum and whiffs of white pepper. Some floral notes in the background, including violets, lavender and spring blossoms. Full in the mouth, with tremendous youthful vigor. Layers of berry fruit with developing spices of pepper, cinnamon, clove and vanilla. Gentle oak integration shows and supports the elegance and roundness of the wine.

Organic status: not organic
