98 points James Suckling: "Layered aromas of plums, black cherries, leather, bark and iron. Full-bodied with a lot of nuance. Firm, gripping tannins. Dried roses and crushed blackberries mix with dark, mineral complexity, leaving a buzz on the palate. A clear note of cocoa powder comes through. Concentrated and dynamic. Superb."
We present the new 2019 Motor City Kitty (MCK) Syrah. It's not rated yet but our unofficial, non-numerical take: the top MCK we've tasted, destined for big scores.
A brand new release and thus not yet rated, we'll give our version of a rating based on all the MCKs we've tasted over the years: the 2019 is the tops. How that equates to points from any one publication is beyond us but we know what's in the bottle. Intensity, character, purity, and balance—they're all here and we love it.
