THE VINEYARD

PROFILE

The 2016 Syrah is deep purple in color with warm, baking spice aromas mingled with hints of maple bacon, sage and cherry pie. Red fruit flavors of bing cherry and cranberry accented with subtle hints of all-spice and graphite. The wine is medium to heavy in body with bright fruit framed by velvety tannins and mouthwatering acidity.
