Winemaker Chaim Gur-Arieh Notes
“Southern Exposure” is our trade mark for our premium wines. In this vintage we produced four different Syrah wines, three of which, including this one, were made from Estate grown grapes. While all three wines have common attributes, I feel that this is the best of this vintage. The reasons are: more meticulous selection of the grapes, better barreling program and plainly speaking more fussing with the wine.

This Syrah reminds me of an old world wine. It has a deep color with dark berry aromas combined with spice and mint. It has very concentrated flavors of dark berries which carry to the palate adding layers of cherry, smoke and leather. This is a well balanced wine has an abundance of the savory type flavors. The wi ...more... ne finishes with a long and lingering finish adding herbal and spicy flavors combined with smoky notes reminiscent of bacon. This is a big wine worthy of aging for several years for optimum quality.
