2010 Craggy Range Le Sol Gimblett Gravels Syrah

Tasting: A stunning inky black-purple color with profound dark purple hues greets the eye. The nose is adorned with perfumed aromas of violets, liquorice, blackberry, dried meat, cedar, and black pepper. On the palate, this wine showcases an elegant demeanor, a departure from the typical boldness of many South Australian Shiraz, yet it exudes exceptional richness and length.

Mouth-filling flavors of liquorice, dark plum, and confectionery lead the way, followed by nuances of meaty cedar and peppery spice on the back palate. The tannins are velvety smooth, albeit slightly dryish. The finish is exceptionally long, leaving lingering impressions of liquorice, plum, confectionery, dried meat, and pepper. This wine is suitable for cellaring for 5-8 years.
