Wine Description

(2013 Vintage) The near impenetrable color of this Syrah hints at its dark intensity. And the promise in its nose, dark chocolate and blackberry with suggestions of molasses-smoked bacon, violet, and earth is only the beginning. In the mouth, meaty plum and more blackberry boldly flood the palate, then soften and reveal a peppery dark chocolate core with hints of minerality and sage. The finish is massive, with big rich tightly-wound tannins complicated by elements of dark plum, kirsch liqueur, and a lingering essence of oak. This wine, an artful synthesis of our twenty-two Syrah blocks, will age beautifully for ten to twelve years.
