Pyren brokenquartzsyrah

Shiraz, "Broken Quartz" 2010

Pyren Vineyard

Deep ruby. A perfumed bouquet combines blackberry, black cherry, cracked pepper and minerals. Juicy and tightly focused, with nicely defined dark fruit flavors and zesty acidity. Very bright and nervy, with good finishing cut and length.

Reviews

  • "91 points. Focused and distinctive, brimming with mineral accents that weave tar, basalt and pepper accents through the dark berry flavors. This comes together seamlessly on the hard, shiny finish. Best from 2014 through 2018. 1,000 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
  • "A zesty shiraz, this wine's black-pepper scents parallel its through-line of acidity, focusing the plush, creamy texture and carrying it through a long, generous finish. Decant it for a grilled steak." (Wine & Spirits)
