Cirrus Syrah a Wine Spectator Daily Pick
Jan. 05, 2015: CIRRUS Syrah Stellenbosch 2011 (92 points, $43)
This cuts a broad swath, with lots of dark roasted fig, blackberry paste and warmed plum fruit stretching out over a long graphite spine that drives through the finish, leaving echoes of tar and smoldering tobacco. A style characterized by mountain fruit. Best from 2015 through 2018. 1,000 cases made. —James Molesworth
PS: The 2010 was a great wine too.
