I’m a big fan of the earthy, solid wines being produced in South Africa and it’s hard to beat the value found there. The 2009 Porcupine Ridge Syrah is no exception. This is a beautiful bottle of wine loaded with big, wild flavors. Immediate and forward tones of crushed black pepper surround the nose, but don’t overpower the smashed raspberry and mulberry elements. There is also some sneaky licorice hiding in there as well. As with most syrah, this bottle offers a thick, rich texture on the palate with a long finish and a surprise burst of raw chocolate as it lingers.

Winemaker's Notes:

87 points Wine Spectator: A nice winey core of dark plum and fig fruit is laced with bittersweet cocoa and tobacco. Drink now. (9/30/11) 87 points Wine Enthusiast: Soft and light on the nose with delicate aromas of raspberry and red cherry. The palate shows a bit more heft, with more concentrated flavors of juicy red plum flesh and berry mash laced with graham cracker and crushed iris petal accents. The structure is firm but balanced; drink now or hold for another year. (Aug 2011)
