This is an excellent example of a fresh yet complex Syrah.  Matured for 14 months in French barrels.

This wine has a full and lively effect on the palate with a spicy cherry note and hint of guava. Earthy with soft tannins and good acidity followed by a lingering finish. Drink now through 2025.

A handsome companion to a beautiful piece of fillet, ostrich with cranberries and camembert or even a delicate and rich dessert like a chocolate soufflé.
