This Melville Syrah expresses what is so special about cool climate Syrahs. Although they are fruity, they go beyond simple fruitiness – there is another dimension of enticing aromatic spiciness. This Syrah has great density of flavor. It possesses earth and animal flavors, and has mouth-coating and delicious tannins.

94 points, Wine Enthusiast (March 2009): “Rich, decadently elegant...”

93 points, Wine Advocate, Robert M. Parker, Jr. (August 2010): “Classic blueberry and raspberry fruit…deep, full-bodied, rich personality.”

93 points, Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar (Nov./Dec. 2010): “…lush blackberry and mulberry flavors…Densely packed, chewy and sweet…”

91 points, Wine Spectator (August 2012): “A rich, sleek, pleasantly earthy style…Full-blown and intense, yet graceful…”

Enjoy it with a green pepper cream sauce and grilled steak, Camembert cheese or Spicy Mexican Al Pastor marinated pork.
