Undecanted from a preservation machine. Nose of spice and hints of vegetal. In the mouth notable acid, flavors of nail polish, bay leaves, earth, spice, and sour ripe dark blue and black fruit. Well balanced and under control for a big syrah, nonetheless, a big syrah. Finishes with a bit of bitterness, wood, and earth.
Unique flavour and beautiful smell. It was medium to full bodied and easy to drink.
Three and a half glasses
