Syrah Sur Echalas 2013 Horsepower
€ 192,39 (incl. BTW)
Up with the top three or four Syrahs in the vintage, the 2013 Syrah Sur Echalas Vineyard, which was bottled in August of last year, offers a complex, savory, mineral-laced style to go with a complex bouquet of ground herbs, pepper, beef blood, dried flower and cured meats. This is a full-bodied Syrah that has considerable mid-palate density, fine tannin and good overall freshness (although I'm sure the pH is 4 or higher).
Broad and expressive, floating like a big balloon over lightly grippy tannins, with earthy plum and spice flavors at the core. Finishes with a strong meaty note.
