Winemaker Jon Phillips Notes
Syrah has always been a special wine for us because it represents the Rhône Valley, a place in France we are very fond of. Made in the tradition of a Côte Rôtie, the addition of Viognier brings out wonderful color and aromas in this wine. However, unlike its Rhône counterpart, long and warm growing seasons contribute to riper fruit that creates a wine with higher alcohol. Don’t be alarmed by the label however, after going to print, we retested the wine and our final blend dropped .5%. Tasting Notes: Full bodied, balanced with great acidity, you find this wine will age nicely over the next 6 to 8 years. If serving during this first year after release, we recommend decanting in order to get some air into the wine to allow it to open ...more... up. The nose is tight with notes of blackberry and chocolate. On the palate you’ll find black pepper, blackberries, cedar, and mocha.
