2016 Kershaw Syrah Elgin Clonal Selection - 94 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2016 Clonal Selection Elgin Syrah is a blend of around eight parcels, all individually micro-vinified and matured with varying levels of new oak, from zero up to 70%. Limpid in the glass, it has a glorious, pure bouquet of red currant, raspberry and mulberry scents that are seductive and very Burgundian – think Vosne-Romanée! The palate is rounded on the entry, offering lively red berry fruit laced with white pepper, fennel and a subtle charcoal note. There is a slight grittiness toward the finish, which is well structured and persistent. This is both a delicious and an intellectual Syrah. - Neal Martin"
