Church Road Grand Reserve Syrah 2011 12.5%
N: Rich, smokey, oaky and packed with dense raspberry and black fruit aromas; some toasty jammy notes and a mix of black and white pepper; suggestions of vanilla and toast and even a little brown sugar.
P: All the flavors of raspberry and black fruits are strong on the palate - quite rich and distinctive; Medium+ tannins show their youthful side; medium+(ish) body and length - this is a very tasty example with a long memorable finish. Well made and highly recommended.
Must like oak!
