New World Syrah 2004 Wine Review (NW)
Plum, chocolate and coffee and the nose
Nutty flavors on the palate
This is a South African Syrah which is made in a modern style that is fruity and juicy. What is interesting is that other delicious layers emerge, too, including some chocolate, coffee and nuts. I was surprised at the abundant flavors in this wine, not expecting much from a catchy label from South Africa. The wine cost $9 and is not a bad alternative to the under-$10 Australian Shiraz that every seems to be reaching for these days. Raise a glass!
