Reviews

2006 Cyril’s Reserve Shiraz - BoozeMonkey.com

Peppery, leathery, smoky & fruity. Blackcurrant jam, blackberry, vanilla oak & a hint of herby/spiciness. A very complex nose.

There is so much going on in this glass, it's difficult to know where to start. First up there is lots of fruit, blackberries, blackcurrants, plums and dark cherries. There is also dark, bitter chocolate and a soft hint of vanilla. Great structure and a velvety-smooth mouthfeel. And on the finish, there is a fantastic bitter/sour cherry flavour which goes on forever. Somehow Brian Light has managed to pull all this together to produce a perfectly-balanced, multi-layered wine in which none of the flavours overpowers any of the others.

Wow! This is not the sort of wine you want to waste on food. This is the sort wine which demands your undivided attention. There is so much going on in the glass, but everything is in perfect balance. The bottle says you should cellar it for 6-10 years, but I can't see how you would manage that... it would be calling to you and keep you awake at night. Hats off, Brian. This is a really impressive Shiraz. Now I know what I want for Christmas.
