Cirrus Syrah 2005

Member Review by Niel M:

I thought this wine was overpriced when I bought it. The connection to South African golfer Ernie Els probably added 30% to the price. I thought these things until I opened the bottle... WOW! Spicy, silky, luxurious, fruit explosion and then smooth tannins. A wonderfully rich wine. Bob Parker would LOVE it! Ha Ha!

My experience with wine is limited, so let me state that up front, however, this wine completely knocked my socks off, the lusciousness of the wine, the aroma came forthrightly to me and if you drink it right, nice healthy gulps it will treat you well, I loved this wine and give it an 8

Plush and forward, with a velvety texture and layers of mocha, blackberry, graphite and licorice all gliding through the seamless finish. There's also fine length, and this might put on some more weight with cellaring. Drink now through 2010. 865 cas... Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from South Africa in Africa. 2005 Cirrus Syrah 750ml
