Tasting Notes

Roasted beef, chipped asphalt and black currant conspire for a very deep and brooding but not overly powerful nose on this bottling from winemaker Trey Fletcher. The palate pops with thyme, rosemary, dried flowers and pepper, with the tangy black plum fruit only emerging with patience. Built to last.

Reviews & Scores

This wine is made from grapes grown on vines planted in 1995. The Syrah vines are planted with a small number of  Viognier vines. The production was 300 cases. With a dark color the wine has a deep perfume showing intense Blackberry fruit with the faintest tinge of spice. Rich, full, and concentrated on the palate the wine maintains a sense of balance and is not at all heavy. The tannins are well integrated and there are layers of Blackberry fruit accented with faint floral nuances intermingled with hints of smoky spice – This is a great Syrah – Extraordinary.

TASTING NOTES

An extremely elegant reserva with an enveloping bouquet of crushed red cherries and subtle spices with just a hint of lavender. On the palate, smooth textures and bright red berry fruits are balanced by a refined mineral character which leads to a long and refreshing finish. Beautifully defined and supple, and almost Burgundian in style, this wine will age well...
