Vanessa Vineyard Syrah 2016

93 points – Here’s a very intense, classic cooler climate syrah with a blast furnace nose of hot stones, pepper, black fruit and wild sage/thyme. The same flavour intensity crashes through the palate but the wine is not heavy or sapid. There is great energy with firm acidity, green fresh herbs and tar on the palate. The tannins are a touch green too, but within this landscape they are well meshed. The length is excellent to outstanding. Tasted April 2020
