Babich Wines 'Black Label' Syrah 2015 Hawke's Bay
Masculine and forward bouquet of roast red berry fruits and toasty oak - vanilla and brown spices galore; black pepper and bacon note (oak) and even a touch of new leather adds complexity and intrigue. On the palate - equally bold and quite dry, flavours of dark berries - fresh and roasted, plenty of oak, plenty of tannin and plenty of acidity. This is a serious wine that needs decanting for service and specific protein selection. Drink from 2018 through 2026.
