There is a new pure Syrah developed in conjunction with Australian winemaker Chris Ringland, first bottled in 2013, but I already tasted the 2014 Zarihs. It is produced with an Australian clone of the grape planted in Borja in 2002. Forty percent of the volume aged in new American oak barrels. It has a ripe and heady nose, very Ringland, deeply balsamic with meaty and roasted flavors, smoky and showy, with that patina of sweet spices lent by the American wood. This is full-bodied and juicy, a voluptuous Syrah with deep balsamic and roasted flavors. Borja with an Australian accent. Very good in its style and very good for the price asked. It should develop nicely in bottle for a few years. 67,200 bottles produced.
100 % Syrah from the Campo de Borja DO in northeastern Spain. Located between the Sierra de Moncayo mountain range and the Ebro River valley, this historic region has produced wine since the late 12th century. The continental climate is mitigated by the cierzo wind that cools the vineyards nightly.
