Luca Laborde Double Select Syrah 2020

Product description

Aromas of cigar, leather, and smoked meat fill the nose with hints of toasty oak, forest floor and baking spice. Well-structured tannins support big fruit flavors of blackberry jam, black spiced cherries, ground black pepper and just a hint of rhubarb.

Pairs well with grilled or smoked meats such as beef, pork and lamb, and dishes prepared with mild cheese or wild mushrooms.

93 Points - James Suckling

Intense nose of cassis, ripe blackberries, dried blueberries, charcoal, cracked pepper, bitter chocolate, cloves and tea leaves. Medium-to full-bodied with very fine, tight tannins. Dark, spicy and vibrant. Try after 2023.

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The leafy and herbal 2020 Laborde Double Select Syrah has notes of ripe berries and integrated oak, with limited varietal character and quite fruit-driven, with a juicy palate and fine tannins. Best After 2022.

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast

This wine is well-balanced and has a restrained nose with subtle notes of strawberry and red plum. Lively acidity and soft but firm tannins hold ripe red fruit flavors and vanilla. It shows hints of herbs in the medium finish.
