Ra Ra Argentine Syrah

This doesn’t beat around the bush and launches right in for the contact with blood and a really full bodied and opulent aroma. The palate is rich in heady hints of cigar box, cedar and fresh fennel.

Although perhaps a little austere compared to what I’ve been drinking recently – I’m reminded of my early days drinking red wines that were far more rustic and earthy than the modern trend of being full of berries.
