Professional Reviews For This Wine

purely domestic wine report | Rating: 92

Here is another brilliant wine from Terry Hoage. A gorgeous nose of lemon drops, raspberry and blackberry showing excellent extraction and definition. The palate shows a lot of concentration in the white pepper, red berries, smooth lilac, blackberry and briar. Just a beautiful, vital wine.

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.
