Syrah, "Rock Garden" 2012

Supple, rich & earthy, areal, oh-so-profound wine with great depth. Asian 5 spice, cool ash, game and just exotic. Oh-so-smooth, deep & classic.

Reviews

  • "93-95 points. The first vintage for the cuvee, the 2012 Syrah Rock Garden has fabulous aromas and flavors of plum, pepper, earth, spiced meats and underbrush that flow seamlessly to a full-bodied, layered and decadently textured Syrah that has polished tannin, no hard edges and a great finish. Given the amount of fruit and texture, it should be approachable on release, yet evolve gracefully for 10 to 15 years." (Wine Advocate)
