Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

($62) Bright red-ruby color. Explosive aromas of raspberry, smoked meat and minerals, with hints of dried fruits; still a bit reduced. Suave and sweet on entry, then high-toned and expressive in the middle palate, with flavors of red berries, game, smoke and pepper. Lovely harmonious acidity contributes to the wine's inner-mouth aromatic character. Finishes with very sweet tannins and impressive spicy length. Proprietor/winemaker Roman Bratasuik has been picking his fruit a bit earlier since vintage 2001 to get fresher fruit flavors, but these tannins are still thoroughly ripe.

Wine Varietal: Syrah

While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
