Not for the faint-hearted, huge color, immense fl avor and good structure. All Syrah components were bled from our best Syrah ferments after 2-3 days on skins (la saignée). The saignée was sent directly to 2 year old Taransaud barrels and underwent natural fermentation. Deep ruby red, brilliant clarity; intense aromas of strawberries and cream, apricot blossom and panna cotta; loads of flavor on the palate, ripe raspberries and vanilla bean ice-cream, with a touch of spice hinting that it truly is Syrah.
Sweet aromas of blueberries, black raspberries, lavender, as well as bacon fat and graphite. Unctuous with mouth filling flavors of raspberries, black raspberries, blueberries, vanilla, and smoky oak. The tannins transition seamlessly across the palate of this full bodied wine.
Vibrant ruby in color with black tints. Pure aromas of blackberry, blueberry, licorice, and white pepper. Concentrated and intense smoked bacon and graphite nuances add complexity to the wild dark berry and violet flavors
Aromas of sweet cherries, cranberry, licorice, and plum are intermingled with cinnamon and raspberry - vanilla compote. The palate is beautifully focused and polished; raspberries, violets, lavender, and cranberries give way to fine dusty tannins that frame the mouth perfectly.
A complex and intriguing nose with aromas of exotic flowers, sweet & sour cherries, blood orange, dark plums, and spice which play beautifully with the ensuing flavors. The palate is plush and seamless with dense flavors of plum, rhubarb, blackberry, blueberry, and cinnamon. The flavors are persistent and balanced by soft, supportive tannins.
