Flavors of blueberries, black plums, dark chocolate, and coffee.
A favorite for many wine enthusiasts, the Syrah is fruit forward and rich, delivering a palate of flavors that coalesce around plums, cedar-roasted herbs, cola, and black cherries, finished with a taste of blackberry pie tartness. A sort of cedar forest floor earthiness adds to the complexity. This wine is silky, rich, and hearty with definite heft - almost a meatiness you can bit into.
The Syrah pairs perfectly with elaborate dinners, such as flame-grilled Filet Mignon, drizzled with black cherry reduction sauce.
The optimal drinking window for the 2018 Syrah is now until 2028.
