Cirrus Syrah 2010

Appearance: Dark opaque.
Aroma: Beautiful blue and black berry aromas are backed up by a bouquet of floral jasmine. There are subtle hints of underlying mocha that adds to the overall complexity of the nose.
Palate: This wine has a powerful entry with an exceptional follow through of the berry aromas onto the palate. There is a full mouthfeel and the fruit pastille flavours are seamlessly integrated with the subtle oak notes. This wine has a powerful entry, and a long, lingering, well-structured finish.
Impression: "In the early 1990's I met Ray Duncan and his sons David and Tim, the owners of one of Napa's great wineries, Silver Oak. Over the years our friendship grew which led us to establish the Cirrus Wine Company. Since our first vintage in 2003, I believe we succeeded in capturing the very essence of a Shiraz influenced by both Stellenbosch and Napa." Jean Engelbrecht
