Creekside 2016 Syrah, Iconoclast

The story of Iconoclast Syrah would make it seem like an also-ran kinda wine. Creekside has three wines in their Syrah line-up known as Broken, Unbroken and Iconoclast and they make up the entire Queens Road vineyard output … this one also sees 21 months in oak (a mix of Hungarian and French), but these barrels just don’t make the Broken/Unbroken cut … but don’t discount this wine as being “lower tier”, it still has plenty of weight with a meaty / spicy middle loaded with white pepper – but there’s also a lovely red berry core that makes the wine more juicy and approachable than the other two and it can hit the table now while you’re waiting for the other two to age in the cellar – but you can still hold this one 5-7 years and you’ll be fine too.
Price: $25.00 – Rating: ****
