Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Porcupine Ridge Syrah

Porcupine Ridge Syrah 2006

Coastal Region, South AfricaWe like consistency and the 06 Porcupine Syrah is almost a carbon copy of the '05or with its smoky, savoury nose and rich roasted peppers and game notes. The entry is soft and warm with plenty of ripe, supple, fruit and peppery, licorice, blueberry fruit with meaty gamey notes in the finish. A serious barbecue red you don't just want to leave on the counter for everyone else to drink. Good value.Tasted: 06 May 2008Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 18.00 specialty listing AB 17.99 private wine shops SK 17.99 MB 17.99 ON 14.85 Vintages Producer: BoekenhoutskloofDistributors: Univins and Spirits
