2006 Wine - Red Massena

2006 Massena The Howling Dog Petite Sirah (Barossa Valley, Australia)
Wine - Red $29.99 (750mL)

Massena began as a partnership between Dan Standish and Jaysen Collins, who believed in the positive influences of traditional values and techniques on the wine they produce. The winery works in conjunction with several expert growers in the northwestern Barossa areas of Greenock, Kalimna, and Koonunga Hill. The fruit is cultivated under dry-farmed techniques, and many of these low-yielding vines are upwards of 120 years of age.

Rating: 93

The 2006 Howling Dog Petite Syrah spent 20 months in French oak hogsheads. Purple/black in color, it delivers an expressive nose of pure blackberry and licorice. Dense and structured on the palate, it has the full tannin characteristic of the grape as well as loads of spicy black fruit. It will require extended cellaring of at least 6-8 years to begin to open up but the balance is there for a very long life. Drink it from 2016 to 2046.
