Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Porcupine Ridge Syrah.

Original tasting and review : This is
Porcupine Ridge Syrah, Boekenhoutskloof, South Africa, 2012, finished at 14.5% alcohol and first sampled two years from vintage date, in September, 2014.

In the glass: Deep mahogany.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows soft and deep smoky fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be soft and languorous.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact flavorful on the palate, with plums and ripe black raspberry, enveloped in bright and smoky wrappings.  The finish moves up into your palate with some pleasant acids, and yet the sip continues to lengthen in your cheeks and mouth.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars with a big plus on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, making this a no-brainer best value.
