The Syrah Brookmans Vineyard represents the essence of Syrah presented in an inky/black color. Full-bodied and incredibly pure with fabulous intensity, it's the distilled essence of licorice, camphor, blackberry and cassis liqueur presented as wine. Most of these Syrah cuvees tip the scales between 13.5% and 14.5% alcohol, so they are not over the top by any means. Low yields, impeccable winemaking, and natural bottling have extracted the full essence of each vineyard. This blockbuster, compelling example of Syrah should last for two decades.
