Great Value


A seductive, spicy, classic cool-climate Syrah nose of concentrated blueberries, black olive, black licorice and menthol moves to flavors of more wild blueberry, cherry cough drop, black pepper, bay leaf and lavender. Northern-Rhone style with California ripeness (label says 14.5%…I’m guessing it’s closer to 14.0). Balanced, layered, fruity, bright and just a little “wild,” this is a big-time pick for lovers of cool-climate California Syrah.
