Subtle spicy syrah

Obsidian Reserve Syrah 2015, Waiheke Island, NZD $75

Rich, dense and weighty syrah with plum, dark berry, violet, black pepper, liquorice and spicy oak flavours. A complex red with a subtle savoury and dried herb character. Approachable now but with the potential to develop well in bottle. (Cork)
