The nose of the 2016 Granite Syrah displays all of the classic expressions—dusty dark fruit, black pepper with soft smoky and herbal tones. On the palate, the wine displays more structure and power than the other Syrah bottlings in the range and stands with a slight rigidity and firm structure. The finish is elegant and thoughtfully crafted, and it will last for decades. I have always had a great appreciation for these wines, as they show a sense of place, with the precision of world-class winemaking. If you are a Syrah lover and collector who has not tasted these wines, it is time to track some down for yourself to add to your cellar.
