The 2008 Sequel Syrah contains 2% Cabernet Sauvignon and was made by John Duval, former winemaker of Penfolds Grange. It was aged for 18 months in 65% new French oak and 5% 300-liter American oak barrels. Smoke, game, black tea, incense, blueberry, and blackberry aromas compose the bouquet of this relatively forward, plush, pleasure-bent Syrah. It can be approached now and will continue to provide enjoyment through 2020.
