Description

This Syrah is a rich, complex, full-bodied wine exhibiting layers of berry, cherry, cassis, clove, spice, earth, toast and smoke flavors. Enjoyable upon release, this wine will reward those with the patience to cellar it for 10 years or more. 

Our single vineyard and small lot releases enable us to deliver some of our finest expressions of Syrah by concentrating on specific vineyards, clonal selections or techniques. Our estate vineyard, named in memory of Fess' late son-in-law, was planted in 1989 to predominantly Rhone varietal types. The wines from this vineyard have consistently been some of the most expressive and highly acclaimed in our portfolio. 

Wine Critic Reviews
"...another complex, layered Syrah that shows the slightly cooler style of the vintage with its perfumed red and blue fruits as well as notes of game, spring flowers, tapenade, and pepper. Gorgeous on the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, has silky tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish. It's the finest vintage of this cuvée I've tasted." ~ Jeb Dunnuck "...bold, punchy and expressive. Super-ripe dark fruit, leather, licorice and chocolate are all dialed up...there is plenty to like, especially for readers who enjoy the more opulent side of Syrah." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
