Winemaker Paul Colantuoni Notes
Our 2013 Grigsby Vineyard Syrah is a deliciously big, rich, concentrated expression of the variety. There’s an immense amount going on here, but it all comes together with the perfect balance and seamlessness of the extraordinary 2013 vintage. The aromas are deep and rich, dark and ripe, with a core of purple and black fruit like a puree of blackberries, boysenberries, black cherries and huckleberries. Undertones of dark chocolate and spice intertwine with highlights of lavender and violets to offer fascinating complexity. The approach is lush and sumptuous, drenching the palate with ripe dark fruit, but the wine’s bright natural acidity keeps it beautifully fresh and vibrant. The tannins here are broad, rich, and exquisitely polish ...more... ed, providing the structure for a delicious finish that is spicy, exotic Syrah at its very finest.
