eRobertParker.com #204 Dec 2012 - Neal Martin - The 2009 Matetic Syrah is from clones 174 and 300 and is vinified in small 1,000 and 800 kilo vats. It has an intense, well-defined bouquet with blackberry, black tea, dark plum and a touch of rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, juicy tannins and crisp black fruit laced with burnt toast and a dash of spice towards the tightly coiled finish. Excellent. Drink now-2020+.
