Syrah, "Motor City Kitty" 2017

K Vintners

Bacon fat, camphor, black Italian cherry, Asian spices, olive, black pepper, dried orange peel, sea salt, cold stone and cool fireplace ash. All this held together with great tension and displayed upon the palate as pure silk.

Reviews

  • "95 points. Coming from the Oldfield and Boushey Vineyards (basically the same vineyard), the 2017 Syrah Motor City Kitty Oldfield-Boushey Vineyard is slightly darker colored and, as with all the Rhones here, wasn't destemmed and was brought up in mostly neutral puncheons. Blackberries, smoked earth, game, chocolate, and chalky minerality all emerge from this beauty, and it's a powerful, full-bodied, concentrated effort that will evolve positively for 2-4 years and keep for a decade. Maturity: 2022 - 2034." (Jeb Dunnuck)
  • "95 points. This is deep and flavorful with spice, meat, wet earth and a light, greenish note. It"s medium-to full-bodied, lively and flavor-focused. Drink now." (Wine Enthusiast)
