(From 2009 Vintage) Inky purple. Deeply scented, spicy and smoky aromas of ripe cherries and cassis are lifted by notes of black pepper, Indian spices and a dusty herbal quality. Shows impressive depth and vivacity to its blueberry and blackcurrant flavors, which are sharpened by juicy acidity. Supple tannins come on late, adding focus to a sweet, impressively long finish.
(From 2009 Vintage) The 1998 Syrah Reva reveals a dense ruby/purple color as well as a classic nose of bacon fat, smoke, blackberries, and licorice. Full-bodied and rich, with a vanillin note added to the black fruit and smoke characteristics, this lush, full throttleSyrah is accessible, but should age nicely for a decade.
