Vibrant red purple in color. MUST let it breathe for an hour otherwise sour, red fruit & thin upon initial taste. After it breathes, the weight one expects of a Syrah comes out along with darker fruit flavors (cherries & plums) and rich mocha lushness. Silky and tannins are well integrated. Med+ acidity, med complexity and easy to drink. Dynamite with Toscano hard cheese with black pepper crust. Also good with Point Reyes Blue or Humboldt Goat cheeses.

Classic example of cool-climate Syrah from the northern Rhône. It shows fat smoky tar and game over huckleberry and black currant fruit; has great acidity and staying power so give it lots of air.


Winemaker's Notes:

This untamed, brawny wine is usually a deep garnet color, with a big bouquet of ripe but spicy fruit sitting atop an earthy base. A fleshy mouth, long finish and wonderful combination of acid to tannins makes these powerful young wines that have the potential to age for at least 10 years. These lively wines are best enjoyed after decanting.
