Mcmanis Family Vineyards Syrah 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Blatantly oak and peppery on the nose, this smells rather odd with lots of cedary, resiny wood and harsh peppery spice. Rounded in the mouth, this enters with some hard acids and soft tannins lending this a rather raw feel. The fruit, raspberry and lightly plummy on the plate, is framed by gently creamy and distinctly vanilla laced oak. There’s some nice spice that emerges on the palate, before the oak begin to assert itself on the back of the palate and clamps down on the short, dry finish. Not defective but hard to like. 78pts
