"The 2017 Syrah The Hated Hunter is laced with the essence of black cherry, plum, new leather, tobacco, menthol and licorice. Striking aromatic top notes add nuance to this potent, beautifully resonant Syrah from Sine Qua Non. A whole range of blue/black stone fruits, lavender and licorice build effortlessly. A marvelously complete and promising wine, the 2017 offers a striking interplay of aromatic intensity, rich fruit and structure." - Antonio Galloni
