The 2017 Syrah Estate La Bruma is racy, supple and super-expressive, with terrific fruit density to play off the intense varietal character that emerges from this cool, marginal site. Sweet red cherry, red plum, spice, menthol, tobacco and licorice all build in the glass, with pretty floral overtones that bring out distinctly red-toned notes. The 2017 is racy and polished to the core. Best of all, it will drink well with minimal cellaring, although it clearly has the potential to age. The 2017 is such a gorgeous wine.
