2008 arnot roberts syrah
"Bright ruby. Powerful nose offers textbook syrah scents of crushed blackberry, violet and licorice, plus a lively smoky mineral note. Sweet and lush on entry, then spicy and intense in the middle palate, offering an impressive combination of black and blue fruits and floral qualities. Ripe but fresh syrah with a juicy, impressively long finish featuring notes of candied flowers and minerals."
