2018 Napa Valley Syrah

This dark red Syrah jumps out of the glass with aromas of graphite, blueberry syrup, grilled meat, wild strawberry, berry, and leather. This Syrah is tightly knit on the palate with flavors of raspberry throughout. Those with patience will be rewarded as this dense and packed wine opens up to bittersweet chocolate and fresh blueberries with time in the glass, giving way to a balanced mid-palate and a layered finish. 95 Points & Best of Class, Los Angeles International Wine Competition
