Tasting Notes

At first glance, the 2016 Syrah is an elegant and exotic wine with very expressive aromatics: white pepper, blood orange, lavender, leather and black tea. Hints of incense, fennel and potpourri spice blend into the complex nose. On the palate it echos the spice notes with more dense blackberry pie, fine tannins, and a round opulent mid-palate. A Syrah style much more in tune with Northern Rhone than one might expect from the New World. This wine will develop and age nicely for 5-10 years.
