Donelan Obsidian Vineyard Syrah 2013

$149

The 2013 Syrah Obsidian Vineyard is truly magical...these rather rare soils have offered up a note with black fruits, crushed rocks, new saddle leather, licorice and white chocolate. Terrific fruit intensity, a full-bodied, sumptuous texture, and a long finish of close to 50 seconds make for a magnificent Syrah to drink over the next two decades. Robert Parker

98+pts with the possibility of going to 99. Stands among the excellence of Syrahs. Rivaling the amazing 09 the 13 Obsidian is outstanding. Charcuterie and Brie cheese hit the senses from the nose. black cherry with olive tapenade and white peeper on the back of the palate. A 40second finish with integrated tannins. Medium acidity, gives this another decade of life. @donelanwines kills it again
