' Quintessential Wines - Eponymous Syrah

Eponymous Syrah 2009


The Eponymous Syrah has a attractive deep purple, garnet color of the wine leads to a complexity of aromas that hint of black pepper, rosemary and a touch of smoky, oven-roasted meat dripping character that is typical of the best Syrahs. The flavors follow the palate, with added spice notes. This full- bodied wine is well-balanced, with good weight and grip that glides evenly across the palate, finishing with pleasing flavors that linger.
