2013 Syrah - Santa Lucia Highlands   

2013Syrah

VINEYARD NOTES: The vineyard for this Syrah offering is located in the cooler region of the Santa Lucia Highlands close to the Tondre’ Pinot Noir vineyard. This cooler area allows the inherent white pepper spice of this varietal to shine through.

 

TASTING NOTES: The 2013 Santa Lucia Highlands Syrah Shows an amazing depth of blueberry fruit with hints of Cassis and white pepper spice. This wine is aged in older barrels to allow the very expressive fruit to shine through and not be muddied by oak. It has a wonderful mid-weight mouthfeel that keeps you coming back for  more.
