Craggy Range Syrah le Sol 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Very deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 Gimblett Gravels “Le Sol” Syrah gives ripe blackberry, blueberry and Chinese five spice aromas with pinches of black pepper and anise. Medium-full bodied, ripe and richly fruited on the palate it’s got a solid backbone of firm grainy tannins and crisp acid, finishing long." -Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Intensely aromatic and floral, with plenty of wood spice, green anise seed and black fruit. Violets, earth and cured meat are rich and ripe with fine depth. This has savory, fresh blackberry fruit, spicy, sappy herb notes on the back end, palate-staining tenacity of fruit, with fine length, fine balance, and ripe tannins. This finishes with uprising brightness of flavor, let's see what three years brings. 92pts

What a gorgeous Syrah this is. New Zealand's finest? Quite possibly. It is taciturn at first, so I give it an hour in the decanter and boy, does it repay you. Pure blackcurrant, cassis and boysenberry on the nose that seems to have sculpted by winema... Neal Martins Wine Journal.
