Smooth black cherry nose. Interesting. Tannic, acidic, medium+ body. Complex. Some spiciness. $40
Big, husky, not sweet. Dusty, but juicy. Too tannic.
I'm a big Autard fan. Opened the first bottle of a case recently, and wow! Huge wine, smooth (despite it's youth) multi layered, spicy. Not sure I'd call in new world style.
Color: Deep, ruby red Nose: Some bitter dark chocolate, slight charcoal and reminded me of port (note: 14.5% alcohol), maybe some licorice Taste: Cinnamon like you get on the crust of an apple pie or some kind of coffee cake, raisins and maybe clove. A good bit of spice that leads to tannins that cover the entire mouth and finishes nicely Overall, I think this is a good cross-over wine if you’re interested in trying the old world styles because the Syrah gives you that familiar spice and tannic character, but you get a feel for the flavors and complexities that come with blending the classic Rhone varietals listed above.
