Merino Syrah 2012
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Merino Syrah is an un-oaked Syrah that has a Northern Rhone feeling, with a special brightness and a wild side - slightly rustic, with aromas of smoked bacon, violets and hints of black olives. The palate is sharp and clean with very fine tannins and great freshness. Drink now-2017.
Wine EnthusiastExotic on the nose, this offers floral blueberry and shoe polish aromas. The palate has a dense, concentrated feel that's based on chewy, soft tannins. Flavors of blue fruits like blueberry and cassis are ripe and come with a hint of black spice, while a moderate finish is on the jammy and flat side. Drink now.
