The 2008 Syrah is a sensory ride that starts strong out of the gate and accelerates to dizzying heights. Based more in the red fruit end of the spectrum, this version of La Sangre also features the
classic grilled steak, white pepper, cacao, iodine, tar and truffles that have defined our previous vintages. Furthermore, it's vibrant and lively on the palate, with a constant tension between bright
red fruit and the darker, deeper notes of spice and smoke. It charges to the finish with dusty Syrah tannin and invigorating acidity. Both sleek and formidable, this is a surprisingly delicate La Sangre considering the palate weight.
