Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Austin Hope Syrah

Austin Hope Syrah 2009

Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo County, Central Coast, California, United StatesIt's been awhile since we last encountered this wine but the result is similar. The style is super rich and spicy with a savoury, bacon fat, Christmas cake nose with bits of vanilla and smoky roasted meats. The palate is full -bodied and spicy with warm rich, sweet black cherry fruti with liquorice, coffee, and vanilla flavours. The finish is long and warm. Not made for the feint of heart. Serve this New World syrah with game dishes.Tasted: 24 May 2011Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 61.00 speculative listing - Trialto Wine Group AB 60.00 fine wine shops ON 40.00 QC 45.00 Producer: Hope Family WineryDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
