Syrah, "The Beautiful" 2013

K Vintners

As complex as Marilyn Monroe’s evening bag; perfume, lipstick, coins, leather wallet, a broken cigarette. Feminine and seductive. A beautiful, timeless classic.

Reviews

  • "94 points. Bright, dark red. Wild, northern Rhône-like aromas of raspberry, cherry, charred meat, lavender, black pepper, wild herbs and spices. Fine-grained and sweet, with lovely primary red berry fruit complicated by herbs, spices, dried flowers and a balsamic quality. Very sexy wine with a broad but weightless finish featuring a fine dusting of tannins, a late note of black olive and lovely lingering perfume. This will be better in a couple years but it's already a fascinating drink." (vinous)
  • "91 points. Lithe and savory, showing green olive, moss and wet leaf notes around a core of black cherry and plum fruit. The tannins are nicely contained, and the finish rolls on without excess weight. Best after 2017. 658 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
