2015 Jet Black Syrah
In another historically warm year here at our Estate Destiny Ridge Vineyard, four distinct blocks were selected, handpicked and whole berry fermented to create another spectacular vintage of “Jet Black” Syrah. Deep dark purple in color, the liveliness of the wine is unique in its enticing bouquet that overflows with lush aromas of black plum, Rainier cherries, cracked pepper with pleasant notes of herbs and spice. This full-bodied red’s palate is generous yet precise, brimming with flavors of blackberry, dark red fruits and black olive, which are framed perfectly by the hints of anise, cedar and clove. Ample acidity keeps the bold finish elegant yet doesn’t detract from the illustrious tannins that give the wine its exceptional length and longevity. While the 2015 “Jet Black” is made to drink now, please decant or give it some air in the glass if drinking prior to 2018, as it will develop immaculately over the next 2 – 3 years in the cellar.
