Vacation Wines - Number Eighteen - 2010 Suisassi, Duemani

Another Copenhagen steal, this new estate - first vintage 2004 - has produced a wonderful 100% Syrah wine. I will look out for more bottles from this producer.

2010 Suisassi, Duemani
It needs some time to open up, but when it does, oooh boy! The nose is ultra deep and focused with gorgeous notes of ripening blueberries, bay leaves, charcoal, raw rubber and dry liquorice. Multi layered and finely polished. Very, very fine.
The taste is young, tight and concentrated with notes of black cherries, ink, rosemary and violet liquorice. Very long and balanced. Some juicy, polished tannins in the finish. There is lots of potential here, just give it 6+ years. Already, a lovely bottle of wine.
