Neal Martin - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

Mullineux's 2013 Syrah includes about 80% whole bunch fruit as it was a cool year from seven different vineyards (five schist, one granite and one on ferrous soils). It has a blackberry and cranberry leaf-scented bouquet, and a pleasant herbal note with rose petals coming through. The palate is medium-bodied with a cool exterior and it is full of tension, and quite linear with blackberry, a touch of mint and cedar with a structured, almost Cornas-like finish. I think the whole-bunch works really well here, although it will benefit from 3-5 years in bottle. Readers should note that in 2013 this bottling includes the Granite Syrah that the Mullineux's felt would benefit the overall blend.

Product Description:

"This perfumed Syrah has notes of black pepper, refined black fruit, smoke and herbs. The palate is full bodied and spicy, with a silky texture and a balanced natural acidity. The long finish is fresh and surprisingly long and supple. This wine will greatly benefit from decanting when drunk within the first 3 to 5 years after bottling." - Winery
