Mcclean Private Estate Syrah 2005
We have recently debuted our 2005 Estate Private Reserve Syrah rosé just in time for summer when poultry, seafood, or picnic fare is served. Unlike typical Syrah Rosés that are barrel-aged for only 1 to 2 months, we have barrel-aged our rosé in 100% French oak for 9 months to bring forward the unique dry characteristics.
this is a very interesting wine.It developed well from glass one to three. Nice red fruit and just the right tannic composition. A little too much alcohol for me but nice all the same. the color was beautiful and supported the anticipation of fruit and finish. get some if you can. great with food.
low alcohol felt much higher....no oak no tannin toooooo much fruit. I'll pass thank you
Smooth... A crowd pleaser. Definitely a good wine to end a hectic week at the office.
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Mcclean Private Estate Syrah
Snag a case of this rose for the summer months ahead! The nose is a delightful blend of cranberry and caramel, leading to tart fruit and a butterscotch-meets-cherry finish.
I love Rose in the summer and this Syrah Rose is winning over. On the nose is an unmistakable aroma of ripening strawberries and tart cranberries with a hint of vanilla whipping cream. It's off-dry on your palate with a hint of caramelly sweetness. Perfect for your summer evenings or even a rainy day.
