Michel Torino ‘Don David Reserve’ Cafayate Valley Syrah 2011

Syrah from Argentina
Review Date : 12-Feb-2014
Very full, saturated black-red colour with youthful purple hues. This has a very full, broad and voluminous bouquet with soft aromas of ripe black berry fruits intermixed with savoury black pepper, Middle Eastern spices, violetty floral lift, and bacony, toasty oak with subtle layers of meat and funky game. Full-bodied, sweet and juicy flavours of black fruits, blackberry jam and pepper are complexed by savoury game, cedary oak and spices. There is a reductive, charry element adding to the interest, and the flavours fill the front palate. The mouthfeel is firm and dry from fine-grained extraction, the acidity soft and in the background. The fruit is carried by the structure to a dry, grainy finish. This is a bold, sweet and savoury Syrah with a fine, firm and dry mouthfeel. Serve with casseroles and slow-cooked red meat dishes. Hand-picked fruit, fermented to 14.0% alc., 70% of the wine aged 12 months in American and French oak. 17.0+/20 Feb 2014 RRP $17.99
