2008 Syrah Napa Valley

Tasting Notes

A glass-staining melange of savory and fruity aromas, pirouetting onvibrant notes of rhubarb, crushed blueberries, strawberries, chocolate mousse and smoked espresso beans. Meaty and gamey undertones play off of spiced hay, blackened red peppers and sugar-powdered pie crust. Blackberries and nasturtiums tiptoe along an active and swelling acidity, skirting from back to front on the tongue with harmony and refreshment. Impressive poise and gracefulness right out of the gate.
