2009 Sugarloaf Syrah

Tasting Notes

A deep ruby purple in color, this wine has notes of lilac, blueberries, and roasted carob on the nose. Its mouth filling, medium weight viscosity cascades over the palate to reveal a textured mélange of savory herbs, roasted game and crushed mineral. Old world finesse meets new world concentration in this classic example of what Syrah can become in the right hands. This wine can be enjoyed now but has the balance and structure to develop gracefully over the next decade.
