Price at time of purchase: $35.00 (from Winery)
Type: Syrah
Principal varietal(s): Syrah

This is an beautifully made Syrah. Intense, focused aromas of dark berries, black pepper, smoke, and spring flowers. Smooth yet with a great sense of grip in the mouth. Powerful but with no hint of heaviness or over-extraction. Remarkably long and satisfying finish. This is a cold weather Syrah - coming from a small vineyard off of Coleman Valley Road above Occidental with a view of the Pacific - yet it has none of the austerity and tannic dryness that can sometimes arise in those cases. This is a great find in California Syrah. - HK 2012-04-27
