2010 Syrah

December 28th, 2013

This last Saturday we poured our brand new 2010 Syrah for the first time in our tasting room. It was a hit so much so that we are continuing to pour it throughout this weekend. Although it gives the feel of a young wine, with breathing it allows for a spicy finish. I think this is a sign of good things to come. It is needless to say that we are very excited. To celebrate this new release we sent our 2010 Syrah to The International Wine Cellar to be reviewed. This is their response:

“($32) Brilliant ruby.  Black pepper and smoky mineral qualities accent ripe cherry and dark fruit preserve flavors, with a subtle vanilla quality adding depth and sweetness.  Velvety, candied dark berry flavors show good clarity and gain weight with air.  Supple tannins gain strength on the finish, with the smoky note repeating.” By Josh Reynolds
