This wine is pretty big, but like most new-world syrahs it wants to wiggle out from a standard classification. Yes, it's dark and brooding, but it had a lively grace to it, as well. Big, almost black fruit, but not approaching Aussie-style. Obviously not a hot-grown region, but well made and minimally handled. The fruit shows through and that's a very good thing. I think this has more legs than most people think, it will drink well for another four years at least. It will throw sediment, but will still be lovely even when stripped down.
