Description

All orders placed for Painted Rock Estate Winery will be fulfilled after January 2, 2017.

Aged 18 months on 30% new oak of which 80% was French and 20% American.

Layered savoury notes combined with fragrant spice, white pepper and cassis on the nose. Rounded and rich on the palate, with juicy acidity and chalky tannins. More cassis, vanilla and a silkiness that continues with a long finish.

Critic’s Rating:

A tremendously aromatic nose of fresh cracked black pepper, violets and wild herbs. Earthy with a sensual muskiness and a tight, taught palate. Lean in a muscular sense with great focus. Youthful with firm but not unripe tannins and concentrated but not heavy fruit. Its evolution should be intriguing. The floral finish is persistent and pleasurable. Best 2017-2020. Tasted August 2015.

Connoisseur Note(s):

Sheer veneer of bold, spicy and heavy laden aromas in this dry as a dusty desert Syrah. Quite a mouthful of syrup, anything but simple and striking in layers of viscosity and unctuous behaviour. West coast tattoos and sun-kissed skin swell, thick juice fills every tide pool and this is just fantastically a wine that turns cartwheels and jumps with joy...The desert likes Syrah and Syrah likes the desert. Drink 2016-2020. Tasted August 2015. Michael Godel

The style change between the 2012 and 2013 Painted Rock syrah is a study in vintage variation, and perhaps shifting philosophy. In any case the 2013 is a wine of more finely detailed nuances, certainly still tightly wound in the reductive house style, but already wonderfully perfumed in the typical cool climate register of cracked white and black pepper, lavender and mediterranean scrub. Tannins are finely woven and neatly stitched, acids are lively and crisp and the length lingers nicely...Fine stuff. Tasted August 2015. John Szabo
