2015 Jamsheed 'Pyren' Syrah Pyrenees


SCORING SYSTEM SCORE
Wine & Spirits
"This south-facing vineyard, planted in 1995, produces small berries in small bunches. Gary Mills ferments those bunches intact, without any additions, then racks the wine with its lees to used oak puncheons where it rests for 15 months. He turns out a black syrah with tart cherry fruit and bitter-chocolate tannins. It needs air to sort itself out, and as it does, the wine’s intensity turns toward grandeur. Built to cellar."

James Suckling
"Dark brooding fruits. Earthy and spicy with eucalyptus and a slight linty edge to the nose. The palate has assertive, clean-cut tannins that deliver a suite of dark cherry, pepper and chocolate flavors. Drink now."
