Raymond Chan writes "This is finely concentrated with tightly bound aromas of ripe blackberry fruit entwined with black mineral note and subtle reductive complexities, unfolding black and dark-red florals and spice elements. Medium-bodied, the fruit flavours are rich and plush, and vibrant, showing ripe and lively flavours of blackberries entwined with black minerals and florals. The palate has a very finely concentrated core and line, the rich and spicy fruit flowing with drive and linearity. This has considerable extraction, the tannins very fine-grained and powdery. The wine carries to a long and elegant, fine-textured lingering finish of black fruits, florals spices and minerals. This is an elegant, vibrant, finely concentrated, fine-textured Syrah with great extract and finesse. Match with lamb, beef and venison over the next 7-10 years. 99% Syrah and 1% Viognier from the winery vineyard, fully destemmed and fermented to 13.0% alc., a portion of the wine on skins for 8 weeks, the wine aged 15 months in 20% new oak".
