Donelan Cuvée Christine Sonoma County Syrah 2012 (1500ml)

$99.99

Syrahs have always been the benchmark wines from Donelan...represents nearly 900 cases of wine. Deep purple in color with lots of roast beef, blackberry, bouquet garni, licorice and charcuterie spices, the wine is rich, beautifully pure, full-bodied and showing well already, which is of course a hallmark of 2012. It should drink well for at least a decade or more. Robert Parker

Fairly silky in the front but with tannins and earthy core on the finish. Drinking well now but will hold for a while.

One of my favorite Syrah's! Great wine that has complexity... Awesome combination of fruit and oak. It's a crowd pleaser and I would definitely recommend it!
