Melville Syrah Estate Sta. Rita Hills Verna's Vineyard 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): Opaque ruby. Aromas of cassis, cherry compote, cured tobacco and pungent flowers, with a note of black olive emerging with air. Fleshy, sweet and seamless in texture, offering round dark fruit preserve and bitter chocolate flavors plus a hint of spicecake. Fine-grained tannins give shape to the finish, which features a sexy floral nuance and a touch of candied violet. In a fairly savory style, which will make it very flexible at the table. (Dec 2014)
