Case of 6
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.
