Modern and exciting. One of the best Syrahs I have had from Italy. A lovely wine, with grapey, raspberry and chocolate character with a hint of meat. Full-bodied, with a lovely soft and silky texture and a long, sweet fruit and chocolate aftertaste. Super —James Suckling
Incredibly rich and intense, this tastes more like an auslese gold cap, with concentrated apricot, honey and spice notes. Lovely vibrancy, with terrific balance and harmony. Drink now through 2025. 300 cases made. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Here's a classic-rated Aussie Shiraz that won't break the bank. Rich, dense and distinctive for its pepper and exotic spice notes weaving through the chewy cherry pie, dried blueberry and coffee flavors, echoing forever on the long, long, finish. Classic —Harvey Steiman
