Tasting Notes
Dark in the glass this new release of our estate Syrah explodes with fresh berries, French oak overtones, savory notes, and cherries. The juicy acidity and velvety tannins carry the ripe fruit and minerality through to the balanced and feminine finish. Hints of tobacco, fig, and blackberry leave your palate begging for the next sip. Hold or drink now. This wine will cellar through at least 2018 and beyond.
Ratings
91 points & Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast "Virtually pure Syrah, this is big, full bodied and loaded with berry and barrel flavors. The accents of clean earth, toast and spice weave through the fruit and onto the well-built finish that features polished tannins. The power and structure suggest that this could age for up to a decade." Excellent, Wine Press Northwest
