Melville Verna's Estate Syrah 2012

$26

A fantastic 2012 Verna's Syrah from Melville. Limited94 Points Robert Parker: "Looking at the three Syrahs, these are all incredible efforts that go screaming past anything else even close to this price point. The 2012 Syrah Estate Verna’s offers a vibrant purple color to go with a full-bodied, seamless and layered profile. Blackberry, cassis, tobacco leaf, beef blood and hints of iron emerge from this stunner that should drink nicely for 4-5 years, if not longer. All from Melville’s Verna Vineyard, 100% Syrah, 70% destemmed and aged 11 months in neutral oak, it’s a no-brainer purchase and don’t miss it...Hold onto your hats, as these latest releases from Chad Melville and winemaker Greg Brewer are off-the-charts good! While both of the Chardonnays are beautiful, and play in the clean, crisp and medium-bodied spectrum, it’s the 2012 Pinot Noirs and Syrahs that are incredible across the board."

I love what is going on with this wine. In the glass, it is deceptively translucent ruby red. On the nose, there is tons of eucalyptus and a touch of freshly picked tomato stem. The palate is unashamedly savory with complementary fruits on the side. It's almost as if you can taste the stems and roots. Wonderful #QPR!

Enjoyed this Syrah very much. Nice almost candy like taste but not over powering. Nice balance of tannins and acid. Would definitely buy again

Blackberry jam, spice, mineral and grilled meat dominate. The finish is velvety, long and memorable. Fantastic, but this has to be your thing.
