Tasting Notes

Our Reserve Syrah is a New World-style cuvée from four distinct vineyard sites located in The Rocks District. The wine bursts with exotic, savory aromas of black cherry, olive tapenade, roasted morel mushrooms, smoked sea salt, peppered bacon, petrichor, and garrigue. On the palate, the wine is savory, with briny flavors of green olive, dark cherry, umami, and cocoa that continues to grow in complexity with an exceptionally long finish. Enjoy!

Drink 2024-2041.
