Raymond Chan Wine Reviews

review

Deep, ruby-red, slightly lighter edged. The nose is softly full and enticing, broody nuances of plums, red berries entwined with spice, a hint of gamey, meatiness, and tobacco added complexity. Medium-full bodied, red berries and plums have a vibrant core, cloves and pepper grow on the palate, followed by savoury meatiness and tobacco. Fine-grained tannins coated the palate with silk; integrated acidity provides freshness and an elegant flow. This elegant Syrah shows freshness, balanced oak element and a silky mouthfeel. Match with roasted pork and lamb shoulder over the next 5-8 years.

Sam Kim - Wine Orbit

review

Gorgeously styled and composed, the wine shows Black Doris plum, floral, olive and cedar characters on the nose. The palate delivers refined mouthfeel and silky flow, wonderfully enhanced by ripe fruit intensity and polished tannins. Seamless and persistent with seductive complexity. At its best: now to 2032.
