Melville Syrah Estate Vernas Syrah Wine 2011

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Savory herbs game leather black olives and cherries all burst from the glass in the 2011 Syrah Verna s Estate. Some slightly rough edges - all typical of the Verna s throughout the years - remain but this is nevertheless an excellent wine that stands out for its personality and character. Antonio Galloni.

Inky ruby. Potent dark berry Indian spices minerals and black olive on the nose. Fat juicy gently sweet blackberry and cassis flavors are underscored by peppery spice and candied licorice qualities that gain energy with air. The smoke and dark fruit elements repeat on the youthfully tannic spice-tinged finish: sweet focused and long. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

This Syrah shows just a touch of smokiness. It has vital acids and furry tannins that structure the cherry pie flavor. Great for drinking now if you
