The volcanic soils of Van Ardi’s estate have welcomed Syrah beautifully, and this vintage is a shining example of their marriage. Rich garnet with a drop of ink on the eyes, sweet licorice and coffee for the nose, a packed body with hints of butterscotch on the palate, and a long finish – this wine is a plush treat for all the senses. A bold reserve with all the signs of an intense Syrah and a background that makes it incomparable. You’ll want to grab a bottle to hold onto as well.
