Winemaker's Notes

A deep, dark purple color with violet notes. The nose displays aromas of ripe cherries, port wine, and smoked ham, accompanied by light herbal notes. The palate presents notes of fig, chocolate, and rum-raisins. Its sweet, voluptuous tannins and crisp acidity result in a long, lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The purple-colored 2007 Syrah El Olivar Alto Single Vineyard was aged in 80% new oak. It offers up a nose of smoke, scorched earth, game, and blueberry. This leads to a concentrated, ripe, layered wine with plenty of savory spice and blue fruit. Tasty and well balanced, this lengthy effort will drink well from 2011 to 2019."
