Melville Donna's Syrah 2014


SKU 20159


With a dark brick colored hue, intoxicating aromatics of rhubarb, cocoa powder and beef carpaccio are immediately noticeable up front. With time, secondary impressions of liquid smoke, stewed black cherries and licorice emerge alongside a bouquet of juniper, rose petals and peppery herbs. The palate impression is pure and seamless with tremendous depth, clarity and drive.

Wine AdvocateEven better, with more depth, density and ripeness, the 2014 Syrah Donna's offers overflowing notes of olive tapenade, salted beef, licorice, black olive, peppery herbs and cured meats, with tons of ripe currants, fresh plum and smoked black cherry fruit. Full-bodied, elegant and seamless, with fabulous purity and persistence, I wouldn't push the aging curve, but it's a killer wine that will provide tons of pleasure over the coming 7-8 years.

Wine EnthusiastSuperfresh and fennel-laced on the nose, this cool-climate Syrah shows underripe plums, raspberry, charcoal, lavender, pepper sauce, thyme and forest underbrush on the nose. It’s impressively floral on the energetic, not overly dense sip, with lavender, rosehip and white sage touches enlivening the dark red fruit.
