K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "When Cult Syrah first hit the scene he was a mouthy upstart; a belligerent, in-your-face raconteur with noisy, controversial opinions on everything from Justin Bieber to geopolitics. With every subsequent vintage he has matured, though we would never say mellowed. Gone are the screaming outbursts and rough edges verging at times on frivolity, replaced by a seriousness of purpose and the wisdom not to offend. He’s a grown-up sherbet, a tannic sorbet. He’s black pepper, curry leaf, cumin, bacon fat and salt. Where once he fidgeted, Cult Syrah now regally presides." Brandon's wines are unabashedly unique in style. He seeks elegance and fine form over power and muscle. Not to say that these wines are wimpy, there is plenty of flavor concentration here, just not the big extraction and alcohol that has become all too common in modern winemaking. This is a beautifully refined, spicy, smoky, savory Syrah with fresh acidity and boundless energy on the palate. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Aussie Wine Buyer).

    This gets my "geek alert" for the month. A natural styled wine with real complexity that has all the hallmarks of that style: bright fruit, gamy notes and exotic floral aromas. But, there is something deeper here as well. The wine stays true to varietal form, which can sometimes be overshadowed in this wine style. It has notes of dried violets and white pepper and vibrant red fruit. Sure, it ain't cheap but it is a singular and experiential wine.
