Andrew Murray Tous les Jours Syrah 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Ynez Valley|
The 2016 Syrah Tous les Jours sports a medium to deep garnet-purple color and leaps from the glass with vibrant raspberry coulis, black cherry and red currant notes with touches of baking spices and roses. The medium to full-bodied palate fills the mouth with spices and red and black fruits, framed by plush, rounded tannins and finishing on a peppery note. This is so different from the previous vintage of this wine and nicely done too!
Always one of the best Syrahs on the broad market for a fair price, this year's Tous les Jours is slightly less exciting than in years past, but still delivers the goods. Aromas of purple flowers and snappy boysenberry lead into a palate that's extremely fresh and vibrant with rounded berry flavors.
Trim and savory, with pensive notes of dried herb, smoky plum and licorice.
