Opaque black purple colour with black crimson hue. The nose is quite restrained at first but eventually yields aromas of blackberry, confectionary and spice followed by some smoky end notes. Full bodied but tightly coiled palate with flavours of blackberry, spice and blackpepper followed by some toasted end notes with spice and blackpepper persisting on the back palate. Fine grained dryish tannins but balanced. Very long spice, cedar and blackpepper aftertaste.
Cellar 5-6 years (2014-2015)
The more statuesque 2007 Syrah Moritz delivers a complex perfume of meat, hung game, Asian spices, incense, and blueberry. Mouth-filling and structured on the palate, this well-balanced effort has superior grip and concentration. It should be in full form with 5-7 years of cellaring.
