PlumpJack Syrah 2014
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Syrah is gorgeous. Loads of flowery blackberry and cassis fruit, along with spice and forest floor jump from the glass of this killer Syrah. It is no wimpy wine at 15.4% alcohol, but the complex aromatics, the stunningly full-bodied, rich flavors of blue and black fruits, the nicely integrated acidity, tannin and wood, all make for a compelling example of Syrah to drink over the next 10-15 years - perhaps even longer. This is a great effort.
Wine SpectatorPolished and impeccably structured, with blackberry and smoky meat aromas and layered, rich flavors of licorice and espresso that linger toward big but firm tannins. Drink now through 2027. 1,124 cases made.
