Other Reviews....
If you have been following my journey through the less big and bold Syrah/Shiraz, you will know I like them silky, pretty and a teeny bit savoury.
The Isolation Ridge is a perfumed and pretty riot on the nose, all violets, damsons, roses, thyme, blackberries, vanilla, baked quince and pencil shavings.
The palate is elegant and refined and from that rollercoaster of prettiness comes a refined fresh fruit acidity, supple tannins, black coffee, liquorice and that beguiling combination of floral notes in a well structured but not overly weighty Syrah. This is still a baby bundle of juicy and youthful mulberries, raspberries, damsons and plums, showing the beginning of what I expect to be a delicious and ever changing life. Very smart.
