Melville 2016 Donna's Syrah
Dark magenta in color, with rich and savory aromatics of beef tartare, teriyaki, cocoa powder, and dried nori are immediately apparent. With time, lifted nuances of white peppercorns, ginger, fennel and salt water taffy emerge. The palate presence is juicy and concentrated, with mouth- watering ripe tannins and excellent purity along with a vibrant streak of acidity that anchors the wine’s voluptuous and elongated finish.
