Wine tasting note: 1995 Edmund Saint John Syrah Durell

1995 Edmund Saint John Syrah Durell

7th Oct 1998 GBP22 USA Table Red

Opaque purple.
Concentrated, slightly confected nose of inky, black fruits - lots of alcohol.
[After Jaboulet's Chapelle '94, the wine seemed strangely metallic - I retasted after a palate cleanup.]
Full bodied and warm with juicy, peppery damson fruit. Good depth, ripe tannins and a long finish.
Very good, dense syrah that needs a few years to show its best.
