Syrah, "Long Way Home" 2014

Sans Liege

Your boot crunches on the path as you pass the garden of sweet black-eyed susans and blackberry bramble. Popping your last Good & Plenty in your mouth you try to recall just how many years it has been. However many, you know they are always waiting for you. The chatter inside is all too familiar. You push the door open; it’s heavier than you remembered. The aromas overtake you- allspice, castelvetrano olives, prosciutto, rainbow peppercorn, plum compote with star anise. He turns and sees you. His knowing smirk reassures you that the time passed will not thwart your homecoming.

Reviews

  • "91 points. Bold but structured, with blackberry, orange zest and peppery licorice flavors that speed toward ripe, refined tannins. Drink now through 2024. 300 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
