Mcmanis Family Vineyards Syrah 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit candied on the nose though with attractive animal animal, mint, and stemmy herb framing notes around a core of oak covered black fruit. Soft and broad on the palate, this has a tinge of sweetness to it, but retains attractive freshness in the mouth and rather classic black pepper tinged and espresso laced black cherry/berry flavors. Finishing a little on the dry side and short, this remains quite attractive with a fairly transparent feel in the mouth. the oak influence becomes more dominant with air, but it remains fairly well balanced and many people will love this. 85pts
