Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Syrah opens with an inviting teaberry and cherry bouquet with hints of cigar box and blueberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is a teaberry and black licorice jellybean blend with notes of blueberry, milk chocolate, and cedar. I also detected hints of chai tea and black pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins drift away nicely. I would pair this spicy Syrah with Korean beef bulgogi. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: 2018 was an exceptionally long and late vintage, and that is immediately evident in the ripe, bold character of this Syrah. Although this wine does have our Syrah’s typical violets, white pepper, and leather, the fruit is decidedly darker, giving way to ripe blackberries and fig. The tannins are gripping at first but then lengthen as they melt on the palate. Two years in barrel have added to an aromatic pallet of vanilla, cedar, and clove.
