Syrah 2014

The Paring

Classic syrah aromas of violets, blackberries and cracked black pepper. Perfect balance between dark fruit sweetness and savory earthiness. Plush and soft then structured and powerful, but refined enough to enjoy today. All that makes syrah such a legendary grape. Shockingly sophisticated wine for $25.

Reviews

  • "90 points. Dark cherry, plum, white flowers and lavender meld together in the 2014 Syrah. Medium in body and gracious yet with good depth, the wine is done in a forward, fruit-driven style that is sure to find many admirers." (vinous)
