The 2017 Syrah Cuvée Keltie has a medium ruby-purple color and a nose of blackberries, with accents of chargrill, mint chocolate, coffee beans and smoked meats. The palate is full, firm and lush with lots of youthful fruit and loads of savory accents, finishing long with a streak of graphite.

The 2017 Syrah Cuvée Keltie is a bold, powerful wine. Cedar, tobacco, licorice and earthy notes give the Keltie its distinctly bold, savory personality. There is plenty to like here, but the 2017 really needs at least a year or two to shed some of its formidable tannin.
