MORGAN SYRAH "G17", SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS 2014 375ml HALF-BOTTLE
Inky ruby. Spice-tinged dark berries, licorice and pungent flowers on the nose, joined by a smoky nuance that builds with air. Shows very good energy and focus in the mouth, offering juicy blackberry and olive flavors and a subtle touch of cracked pepper on the back half. Closes sweet and long, displaying sneaky tannins and bright, peppery persistence. I was reminded a lot of a Crozes-Hermitage.
Lively and well-built, with spicy blackberry aromas and layered dark plum, bittersweet chocolate and grilled herb flavors. Drink now through 2024. 1,296 cases made. Issue Web Only - 2017 TF
Lastly, the 2014 Syrah G17 checks in as a blend of 86% Syrah, 7% Grenache and 7% Tempranillo that has plenty to love. Giving up notions of plums, blackberries, licorice, crushed violets and spice, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, a pretty, elegant and seamless texture and a great finish. It's a charming Syrah to enjoy over the coming 5-6 years. Drink 2016 - 2022. 28th Sep 2016 Jeb Dunnuck
