    Winemaker's Notes:

    Charcuterie, white and black pepper, tobacco and leather seduce the senses immediately. Cherry, blackberry and blueberry all laced with floral hints and blood orange prepare the palate. An iron ferrous quality runs through with long and chewy tannins. The finish will linger with more notes of cured meats, smoke and mulberry. This Syrah illustrates why we love this varietal and will offer hours of enjoyment as she reveals her secrets (if you can wait that long).

    Blend: 97% Syrah and 3% Viognier

    Critical Acclaim:

    Saturated ruby. Varietally accurate aromas of dark berries, violet and smoke, with higher-pitched mineral and spice nuances building with air. Juicy, incisive and animated in the mouth, offering fresh blackberry and mulberry flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate. The spiciness comes back on the very long finish, which features lingering notes of soy sauce and candied violet. Approachable now but I'd come back to this in a couple of years.

    so tempting to drink this now because it has all those delicious floral and spice notes on the nose, but wait, because this gets even better with a few years in the cellar. I would totally buy a case, then drink one every year just to see it evolve. This wine has character, a sense of place and a whole bunch of layers that have you wanting to savor each sip, but also wanting to drink more! LOVE this wine!
