2020 Bien Nacido Syrah
The iconic Bien Nacido Vineyard, with a long history dating back to 1837, is a cool climate vineyard with rocky soils. While best known for producing critically acclaimed Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, it also produces fantastic Syrah.
The 2020 Bien Nacido Vineyard Syrah will stain your glass a beautiful inky hue of opaque garnet. The nose offers enticing aromas of dark fruits accented by notes of black pepper, smoked meat and dark chocolate. On the palate, expect a velvety mouthfeel with well-integrated tannins, revealing layers of dark fruit compote, savory spices, and a touch of earthiness giving way to hints of dark chocolate and espresso on the long, satisfying finish.
Pair with slow-cooked meats, peppercorn steak, hearty stews, roasted duck or anything with bacon!
