Loxton Wines Syrah Port Rouge 2006

Member Review by Philip James:

Rich herbal nose, slightly strange, but rather intriguing. Inky black full of dark syrupy fruits. Finish was spicy with some herbal tones - pine needles. Overall I was very impressed. I like ports and sweet wines, but dont think syrah makes them very well. So, i was pleasantly surprised - this was my favorite loxton wine.
