Winemaker 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

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.
