Christopher Tynan's wines do not get enough attention. The Syrahs are great but this is stunning. Inky purple in color, opaque and shimmering bright. The nose has cassis, blueberries, camphor, baking spices, fresh tobacco and chocolate. Full bodied. Firm tannins. Great energy and balance. This is still very young but starting to open up. On the palate, cassis, pencil lead, and chocolate with some underlying char. Long finish. This needs another five to ten years to get closer to peak and then should be great for another twenty to thirty after that. Great on its own, this needs big food right now. A spicy lamb stew would work well.
