    Winemaker's Notes:

    At the winery, the Syrah was blended with a bit of Viognier and some Grenache from 85-year-old vines. The wine was aged for 20 months in French oak, The Grenache added some breadth to the wine, particularly notes of wild strawberries. The Viognier brightened the color, contributing floral notes and softening the tannins.

    What's surprising about this Syrah is how soft it is on the front end. Flavors of blackberry jam, black cherry and vanilla are unveiled as you sip this wine and those notes stay in evidence through a lengthy finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Everything about this medium-full-bodied effort impresses for its balance and energy. Its outgoing aromas are a bright, forward, moderately rich mix of boysenberry and white pepper with hints of stones and minerals. It is supple in its early palatal impressions and firmer with being hard or the least bit abrasive towards the back. Its fruit is mid-sized, on point and continuous, and its finish is clean, long and agreeable. It can benefit from aging but does not need it, and its price is right.
