What’s in the glass tonight January 7th – Syrah

John Forrest Syrah 2009

John Forrest Collection Syrah Gimblett Gravels 2009

A wedding gift wine. Deep carmine. 13.5%. Expressive and savoury nose, with red fruit, matchbox, white pepper and forest floor aromas. Lovely.

Well-structured in the mouth with good (but not over)ripeness, plenty of flavour and fruit weight, crunchy tannins. A mouthwatering and spicy finish.  Stylish.

Delicious. Another 4 years left in this baby, easy.
