Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Syrah from Lafond opens with a fragrant elderberry and cola like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty black currant and plum blend with hints of birch beer, black cherry and mild oak in the background. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Syrah is drinking very nicely right now. I would pair it with a juicy bacon burger. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This SRH bottling continues to showcase the cool climate character of Syrah as grown in the Santa Rita Hills. 2011 was a cool and a late harvest with a small crop. In spite of the coolness the vines matured well and we picked at optimum ripeness. The wine shows intensity and complexity.
