2015 Block 17 Syrah
This estate grown Syrah is produced from the Sara Lee Clone in Block 17 and was co-fermented with whole cluster Viognier grapes. This technique is Old World in style and increases color extraction and increased acidity while opening up the wide range of expressive aromatics. Our Block 17 Syrah is distinguished by its deep and dark inky color followed by the rich bouquet of fruit aromas, black currant, licorice, and clove with hints of sandalwood and thyme. A mouthful of dark, rich coco and truffle is complimented by smoked game, cedar, coffee, and vanilla flavors make this a lush and elegant wine. This Syrah has a long finish with soft, velvety tannins. A young, bold wine with a supple amount of acidity; if consumed prior to 2019, please decant.
