2005 Jordan Estate Stellenbosch Syrah 82+ - 84+ Points

2005 Jordan Syrah 82+ - 84 + Points

Medium clear, bright ruby red, slight garnet rim, medium plus concentration, medium plus viscosity.

Clean, high intensity, showing evolution with hints of bright young fruits, pungent blackberry, preserved cherries in kirsch, fragrant lavender cologne, spicy black and white pepper core, with subtle hints of star anise, old earthy leather and hints of mint freshness.

Fine combination of new and old wood, could there be a mix of French & used American oak barrel here ?

Dry, confirms fruit with hints of prune juice , low plus acidity, medium plus alcohol, medium plus finish and medium plus complexity, now until 2015
