Cobaw Ridge Syrah. Cracked pepper, grilled meat, blackcurrant, lavender and dried herb, even some kind of sweet wet earthy stuff. Medium bodied but dense, all the juicy small dark berries, a lick of juniper, layers of spice, a fine sweep of emery tannin, and an intense finish, with rich fine tannin trailing in its wake. It's a damn fine syrah.
