WineDiva's Review

Sweet, fragrant, generous
The entire Escorihuela 1884 series has seen a facelift, the new label is more elegant, but not a huge departure from previous vintages.
The Syrah is always a favourite in the lineup and it stays true to that in the 2019. Sweet black raspberry and vanilla, licorice root and violets, plush chocolate and vague salty undertones are expressed on the nose. It has a jubilant palate, fleshy sweet berries, hints of white pepper and mocha. It's still youthful, so there are some edges, but overall it's a balanced wine with notable concentration.
A solid partner for game meats, roasted wild mushrooms, aged cheeses and cheese fondue.
Second Review: June 2022
Red plum and white pepper notes are woven with bay leaf, charred licorice root, black cherry, vanilla, espresso, dark chocolate and bay leaf. It has a fleshy palate and plenty of peppery spice flavours layered with smoked sausage, leather, coffee and cocoa. Nice freshness all around, with sooty fine tannins.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Olive Oil & Cracked Pepper
