K syrah powerline

Syrah, Powerline Vineyard 2016

K Vintners

Smooth like porcelain and aromas that echo the history of Syrah. Black pepper, forest floor, suede, pipe tobacco, lavender and flavors of the same and more for this earthbound wine. Dried plum, sarsaparilla, stone on tongue and green olive. Medium-bodied. Full-flavored. Flawless.

Reviews

  • "96 points. This is a unique red with grilled meat and red beans. Veggie and tobacco notes, too. Full bodied, yet agile and vivid. Love it. Drink or hold." (James Suckling)
  • "95 points. All Phelps clone and not destemmed, the 2016 Syrah Powerline was fermented in small, stainless steel bins and aged in mostly neutral puncheons. It has a big, spicy bouquet of white pepper, blackcurrants, sappy green herbs, and hints of game. This carries to a medium to full-bodied, elegant wine that has good acidity, fine tannins, and a great finish. It's another Northern Rhone look-alike." (Jeb Dunnuck)
