MAN OWAR DREADNOUGHT SYRAH 2012

“Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Dreadnought is a 100% Syrah showing ripe blackberry and blueberry preserves on the nose alongside hints of pepper and cloves. Full-bodied, concentrated, spicy and peppery, there is plenty of acid freshness, a medium level of rounded tannins and a long finish.” -Wine Advocate (91 Points)

The 2012 Dreadnoug ht is incredibly fragrant with aromas of sweet red fruit, spice
and savoury gamey notes which are typical of the style. The palate is undoubtedly
concentrated yet retains an element of elegance with supple fruit and vibrant acidity.
The fruit and stem tannins are fine grained and ripe adding freshness and length to
the wine, with the overall structure suggestive of classical Northern Rhone Syrah.
Stylish, finely balanced this wine is beautiful now but will reward careful cellaring.
We evisage graceful development as the fine boned structure becomes more
apparent and great complexity ensues.
