"(14%; just 1 g/l r.s.!; aged in seasoned oak; from vines planted in 2005 on the slopes of Helderberg Mountain): Dark red with ruby tones. Complex nose offers dark berries, wild herbs and spices, with a balsamic quality and subtle lift from dried flowers. Suave and fine-grained in the mouth, with lovely precision and aromatic lift to the lightly saline flavors of red and darker fruits, flowers, spices, iron and botanical herbs. Finishes bone-dry, restrained and very long, with harmonious tannins. This very refined yet exotic Syrah needs time to expand in bottle. A very strong performance for young vines. - Stephen Tanzer"
