What’s in the glass tonight July 30th

Vidal Reserve Syrah 2010

From the Cellar: Vidal Reserve Syrah Hawkes Bay 2010 – $$

Champion wine at the 2012 Speiglau Wine Competition. I bought this bottle for less than $20!

Tertiary nose. Dense with vanilla and dried dark fruit. Powerful and impactful. Smells wonderful, despite being served a bit too cold from the cellar.

Dense fruit flavours. Grippy. Hint of brown paper. Sweet on the mid-palate. Showing really ripe fruit. Rhone-like. Delicious. I love it when a plan comes together!
