Blueberry and blackberry aromas and flavours on the nose and palate, with toasty oak and dark spice. Firm grip on the palate from tannins. Full-bodied. Decant 2 hours and enjoy with a rare steak.

Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Aromas of ripe blueberries, dark chocolate, and dried eucalyptus leaves. On the palate, we have tart blackberries and cassis with velvety cocoa tannins that linger. It is quite lovely and I would recommend this wine.

Tasted January 2018
Baracchi O'lillo 2015 is a well-priced medium-bodied Syrah with blueberry and vanilla flavours on the palate. Tannins are firm. Drink now and for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
