Ransom Syrah 2010 Matakana 14%
N: Lots of youthful wild red fruits of Syrah with raspberry and fresh blackcurrants then then a toasted barrel layer cut with white pepper and brown spices. Youthful still and promising.
P: A taut palate with a lot of bottle development time ahead. Moderate+ in body with medium+ acidity and tannins. Integrating and maturity required over the next 3-5 years. Quite dry on the finish, but again needs time. Overall good stuff!
