2017 Stagecoach Syrah
"Lots of sappy green herbs, cassis, leather, and spice notes dominate the bouquet...With fine tannins, medium to full body, and a beautifully polished, elegant mouthfeel, drink bottles over the coming 7-8 years or more as well." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
We love the diversity that Stagecoach Vineyard Syrah brings to the line-up, producing a full-bodied Syrah, rich in extract with a pronounced finish. The intense opaque purple color will coat the glass, while dark fruit aromas of blueberry and boysenberry, with hints of acacia flower, vanilla and baking spices are followed up by earthy notes of tar and crushed rock on the nose. Concentrated flavors of blueberry, blackberry and Kirsch liqueur are accompanied by vanilla, black pepper and violet on the palate.
This Syrah is well matched with semi-firm cheeses with intense flavor profiles, grilled bison or braised short ribs.
