Sequel Syrah 2011

Columbia Valley, Washington, United StatesLong Shadows is a collective of sorts, with each wine in the portfolio made by a different winemaker. The difference here is that the winemakers are among the world's most iconic wine names, like Michel Rolland and John Duval. Sequel is made with Duval (ex-Penfolds, and maker of Grange for many years). Full bodied and silky, with dark chocolate, blackberry, perfumed florals, vanilla pod throughout the lush palate. Tannins are ample, but downy soft, to a sweet, cool mint finish. This is a lush, polished, but elegant red. Drinkable solo, but will match rare beef or lamb very well.Tasted: 08 February 2017Tasted by: Prices: US 60.00 US Producer: Long Shadows VintnersDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
