Syrah grapes are from our neighbors vineyard, Bent Creek Vineyard. Located in the Southeast foothills of Livermore Valley.
A breakthrough, lighter-style syrah, this wine matches visually with its luminous purple-garnet color. Primary aromas of meaty steak, manly leather and tobacco are supported by ripe plum and curious black olive. Last night’s campfire tickles your nose, and cracked black peppercorn is a spicy conspirator. The flavors provide the rich savoriness of dark plums sprinkled with black pepper. The alcohol is subtle, and the acids are soft yet present. The finish ushers in dried plum flavor with a whisper of oak.
