This Syrah is truly a valley wide blend, with grapes from cobble, hillside and terrace microclimates and soil types. Aromas of pine give way to smoke, black olive and gamey characters. The palate echoes the aroma, dominated by smoky Syrah notes, with black cherry, pepper and vanilla accents. There's great integration on a firm structure, with brightness and youth setting the stage for beautiful evolution in the bottle. Should cellar well for 5–8 years.
