Overview

5 Star Provenance !!

O. Fournier Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 (6 x 750mL), Mendoza, Argentina.

92 Pts. Robert Parker

Grape Variety: 50% Syrah, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes: Intense red colour with purple tinges. This is a wine of outstanding elegance and personality. Its spicy aromas seduce with their complexity and intensity. Black pepper, liquorice, toasted coffee beans and mocha are discernable around fruited sensations of cassis and gooseberries. The intense and silky tannins dominate the palate and leave a pleasant, final sensation of a round and notably harmonious structure. Pair with carpaccio, spicy foods, meats or risotto with mushrooms. In order to fully appreciate the quality of this wine, it is recommended that it be decanted before serving.
