Babich Syrah

Drank this at Adrian and Lynnes with all the family. A nice meal before the hectic few days to come.
2006 Babich Syrah, Hawkes BayDark purple red with a powerful nose of black cherry and blackberry and
a slightly smoky spicy edge to the palate along with lovely ripe fruit
and a liqourice like tannin backbone.
92/100
A really lovely New Zealand Syrah from the Hawkes Bay.
They are full of regional terroir which I can now detect having lived in the area for some time last year!
Makes me want to go back!
