Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Intensely hued, this Syrah begins with aromas of blackberry, sandalwood, cedar, and berry pie. Delicate whiffs of truffle, earth, and musk are intertwined with light sweet vanilla tones, a delicious smoky toast, and leather notes. On the palate are bright flavors of black cherry, currant, white pepper, clove, thyme, and hints of violet. A luscious and bold wine with a finish that begs for more.
Vineyard Notes
Abundant winter rainfall provided full soil profiles to start the growing season. A uniform and short bloom period coupled with cool growing temperatures through the early part of the season ensured even development with little variation throughout the vineyard blocks. Early summer temperatures were cooler than normal, while the end of summer brought temperatures that were consistently warmer. All these factors culminated in full phenolic ripening, resulting in wines that have beautiful, deep color, balanced tannic structure, and a round mouthfeel with soft acidity.
Food Pairing Notes
Roast leg of lamb, braised short ribs, or lobster paella on the grill.
