Cassini Cellars 2007 Syrah - 86pts
Availability: Sold out. Library release
Date Tasted: June 12th, 2013
Sadly, this Syrah has peaked and has begun its inevitable decline, accelerated by the use of a synthetic enclosure which has shortened the length of the red fruit and oak flavours on the palate and encouraged the development of prune-y, port-like oxidation. The premature aging is not as apparent on the nose which remains enticing and complex with lush aromas of baked cherry, vanilla, potpourri and toasted oak. If this wine is aging in your cellar, now is the time to open it; the drinking window is closing.
