Deep garnet in color, notes of violets, duck plum sauce and cocoa powder come forward initially. On the palate, intriguing components of boysenberry liqueur, salted caramel and vanilla bean mingle with savory hints of morel mushrooms, beef carpaccio and all spice. The mouthfeel is tender, with an elegant streak of fresh acidity that frames the wine's lengthy and vibrant finish.

Wine AdvocateI always love the two blockbuster Syrahs from this estate, both of which need to be sought out by readers. Tons of black olive, smoked and salted meats, as well as ripe dark fruits all emerge from the incredibly polished, elegant and layered 2014 Syrah Estate, which is just an off the hook value. Inky colored, layered, yet graceful and light on its feet, with gorgeous fruit, drink this beauty over the coming 4-5 years, although I wouldn't be surprised to see it evolve for longer.
