2017 Klipsun Syrah Tasting Note
Black fruit, blueberry and cigar box aromas burst from the glass leading to flavors of blueberry pie, vanilla and allspice. A round mouthfeel and approachable tannins with a long finish of baked pear, tropical fruit juice and just a hint of toasty oak. The wine is dense but very approachable and inviting with its silky tannins and will pair well with lean meats like lamb, venison, elk and top sirloin steaks.
