Trinity Hill Homage Syrah 2013
|Region||New Zealand, Hawkes Bay|
This full-bodied, richly tannic wine delivers. It starts off with savory notes of cracked pepper, black olives, violets and cedar, then eases into concentrated flavors of blueberries and roasted meat before ending with a flourish of firm, dusty tannins. Give it a few years to soften. Drink 2020-2030.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Homage Syrah gives youthfully muted blackberry, cassis and red currant notes with a cracked black pepper, sandalwood, dried herb and soil laced undercurrent. Light to medium-bodied, it is wonderfully elegant and light-footed in the mouth with soft, rounded tannins and great freshness, finishing long and pepper-laced.
A fragrant mix of fresh cracked black pepper, white pepper, dried lavender and bold, intense black licorice flavors, with a hint of tomato leaf, this has a muscular, tannic backbone of blackberry and blueberry flavors, lingering aromatically on the finish. Drink now through 2026. 540 cases made.
