2019 was an exceptionally long and late vintage and that is immediately evident in the ripe, bold character of this Syrah. Although this wine does have the violets, white pepper, and leather typical of our Syrahs, the fruit is decidedly darker, giving way to ripe blackberries, and fig. The tannins are gripping at first but lengthen as they melt on the palate. Two years in barrel have added aromas of vanilla, cedar, and clove to the palate. Please pair with something savory, and I’m just thinking out loud here, a carefully reduced berry balsamic sauce.
