Tasting Notes

2020 was a warmer vintage with a smaller crop than average which resulted in excellent concentration. Syrah loves a warm vintage, and this wine offers expressive aromas and flavors of blackberries, blueberries, savory umami, toasted peppercorns, and earth with a touch of sweet herb. Excellent overall balance, with supple sleek tannins and a long generous finish. Pair with anything off the grill, wood fired pizza, Drunken Goat cheese, charcuterie, or simply enjoy a glass with friends!

Drink or Hold.
