Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2018 Syrah is inky purple with aromas of blackberry, dried herbs, and white pepper. A blend of both cool climate and warmer climate grapes, this wine has a deep richness nicely cut by its acidity. Full-bodied, with rich flavors of baked blueberries and ripe plum.

Winemaker Notes
2018 was a cooler vintage than the previous few vintages that were earlier and warmer. We were able to have longer flavor development with hang time into November.
