Channeling major Northern Rhône flavors, especially cracked black pepper, olive tapenade, smoke, and blackberry compote, this Syrah shows pronounced meatiness and beautiful violet florality. 40% whole cluster fermentation & 100% neutral oak allows the natural flavors of Syrah to shine aromatically & texturally. This is a textbook example of Santa Rita Hills Syrah at the very highest level!
