Tasting Notes

Very attractive, plush and rich red and dark-fruit aromas with beautifully integrated oak and youthful, spicy complexity. The palate has lush, seamless and velvety tannins that are elegant yet powerful and deliver a silky build of ripe dark-berry flavors into a long, seamless finish. Greatest Siran ever! Try from 2023.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, January 2019

The 2016 Siran has a deep garnet color. It is a little closed to begin, soon unfurling to reveal notes of ripe red and black currants, blackberry preserves, and forest floor, leading to hints of bay leaves and crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chewy and refreshing, delivering mouth-coating, pure black fruits, with a mineral-laced finish.

Dark purplish crimson. Lovely classic Margaux scented fruit. Ultra-fine, dry and elegant tannin texture. There’s a slight austerity here but everything is in balance for elegance in the longer term.

Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, October 2018

The 2016 Siran has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of cassis and chocolate-covered cherries with wafts of black soil, licorice and violets. The medium-bodied palate is lively with grainy tannins and a good fruit core.
