Syrah 2003 Magnum

Syrah 2003 Magnum

Winemaker Notes

For 2003 we again sourced our estate Cox's Rock and Cobblestone Hill vineyards in the Umpqua as well as Steelhead Run in the Applegate. The resultant wine is true to the Abacela style with intense, concentrated ripe blackberry and plum fruit, black pepper, and earthy spice aromas. Full bodied and dense, the palette conveys lush fruit wrapped in substantial but not overpowering tannins and a lengthy, well focused finish. Try this wine with prosciutto-wrapped venison loin with chipotle demiglaze.
