2014 oregon syrah The 2014 Oregon gargantua Syrah is black cherry in color and offers up heady aromas of dark fruits, savory herbs and warm spices. There is a slight hint of peppered meat and tomato tapenade with bay leaf and French tarragon on the nose. It is richly textured and dark fruited with great acidity which makes this wine mouthwatering while still taught and dense with fine grained, plentiful sweet tannins. This wine is a wine for the cellar but should begin drinking well in 2018 with a decantation. It finishes with Iron driven minerality, meatiness and a savory herb component as well as a note of dark chocolate and tobacco. This is an elegant and succulent but powerfully dense Syrah. Drink 2018-2028.
