De Bortoli La Bohème Act Four Yarra Valley Syrah Gamay

Inspired by the bistro wines of the Ardeche, and it captures the style impeccably, uniting whole berry juiciness with whole bunch fragrance. It’s exotic, spicy and textural, laced with sarsaparilla, pipe smoke, dried flowers and incense over a crunchy berry compote core and finely textured, grippy structure. $18 at Cracka.
