The nose is complex with aromas of fresh olives, purple flowers, dark berries, and black plums.
With a slightly brighter palate than last year, this vintage boasts super supple tannins with juicy flavors of huckleberry, boysenberry, and a pop of sage. Enjoy this one...savor it...because once you take a sip, it's going to be gone! Decant for an hour while young. Drink 2022-2034.
With our Syrah quickly becoming a fan favorite in the tasting room I really didn't want to change too many things. I kept the same oak program and stuck with the 10% whole cluster as well to get that inky dark and brooding Syrah. I event kept the same block...Block 10 but I had to watch it closely as it can ripen (and over-ripen) really fast. I think this one is right in line with the 2018 but a touch brighter and will begin to hit its stride in June of 2022. - Joshua Roznowski
