In the glass, this Santa Lucia Highlands Syrah has a midnight-black, inky center that eventually fades into a pencil thin electric halo….
A sniff is dark and meaty with black cherry, raspberry, and greasy venison notes….
This big boy has a mouth coating, red fruit and bright acid start before heading into a meaty mid-palate that’s stuffed to the gills with blueberries and bacon fat ———-> The third act is a blackberry jam and anise bomb before an ending filled with sharp and sticky tannins that hang on a solid minute after my last sip….
This one goes out to all my fellow Syrah lovers ——–> Here’s an expression of the variety that’ll give you all the dark fruit and greasiness that you’ve come to love from a Cali Syrah with a good amount of structure to level things out…. Enjoy y’all!
