Syrah, "MCK: Motor City Kitty" 2013

The definitive MCK! A totally rockin’ wine just likes its namesake: Detroit Rock City. Bold, big complex layers of five spice, cool ash and hung meat. Don’t just take my word for it. Drink this wine!

Reviews

  • "96 points. Hold onto your hats with this puppy, the 2013 MCK Syrah comes from the highest elevation parcels in Dick Boushey’s Boushey vineyard, from altitude close to 1,300 feet. From three different clones (Phelps, 174 and 383) and aged 23 months in 30% new 400-liter puncheons, it comes screaming out of the glass with notes of gamey meats, black currants, lavender, flowers and black raspberries. Reminiscent of ripe Cote Rotie, it has full-bodied richness, fine, fine tannin, solid concentration and a great finish. Count me a fan and this fabulous Syrah will drink well for another decade or more." (Robert Parker)
  • "91 points. (from a 2008 planting in one of the higher spots in Boushey vineyard): Dark red-ruby. Sexy aromas of cherry, lilac and violet, plus a hint of chocolate. Nicely lush in the middle palate, but with no shortage of energy. The slightly saline red fruit flavors are firmed by a solid acid/tannin spine." (vinous)
