Squawking Magpie "The Stoned Crow" Syrah Hawkes Bay 2008
N: A broody almost angry bouquet with dark, toasted and oaky dark red and black berry fruits, sweet ripe raspberry lift, black currant and white pepper spice.
P: Reflects the nose with a wild and tamed raspberry and black currant fruit core, some very noticeable gravelly earthy elements. Medium+ to High tannin impact with the fruit and oak meaures competing for attention. Juicy acidity, great balance and a long broody finish.
Very very good - 91 Points.
