True to its name, the 2013 Hunt and Gather evokes the pleasure of a walk in the woods. Syrah from the Funk Estate lends characteristic aromas of warm river stones, meaty olives, and bramble. Notes of dark chocolate and cassis are complemented by warm, oak-spiced vanilla. Freshly roasted coffee, blue fruit, and bright cherry bound across the palate. A cashmere mouthfeel is becoming a hallmark of this blend, and this vintage’s smooth texture leads to a smoky, memorable finish. Enjoy with anything cooked over a campfire.
