Graham Beck The Ridge Syrah 2012

Inky dark in color with a lovely nose of dark berries. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with blueberry coming through very nicely. Big and bold this is a lovely wine. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice dryness, tannins and a hint of pepper and spice. I would give this wine an 89-90. Very nice
