RASA VINEYARDS Syrah 'Doctrina Perpetua' 2013

Continuing the excellent Rasa lineup is the 2013 'Doctrina Perpetua' Syrah, sourced from Block 5 at the Bacchus Vineyard. The wine was aged for 30 months in French oak prior to bottling and underwent native fermentation. This is a resounding Syrah, weighing in at 15.1% alcohol and displaying a wide range of fruit flavors. This inky colored wine begins with aromatics of bacon fat, blackberry jam, black olive and hints of white truffle oil. The bouquet is absolutely gorgeous as this continually brings you back to the hedonistic aromas. There are dense flavors of black cherry, black olive, black tea and hints of smoked brisket. The Syrah utilizes superstar winemaker Billo Naravane's signature silky mouthfeel. This excellent release is not short on flavor, as the minerality tames this dense treat.
