Plumpjack Syrah Napa Valley 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

92-95 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): One of the strongest wines in this range, 2014 Syrah bristles with energy and tension. The 40% whole clusters are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. Black cherry, plum, pepper, menthol and savory herbs add further shades of nuance on the expressive, inviting finish. Hudson and Stagecoach are the vineyard sources. Drink: 2019-2029. (Oct 2015)
