    Shelf Talker: 2013 Syrah
    Shelf Talker: 2013 Syrah (NEW)
    Tasting Note: 2013 Syrah

    tasting notes

    Whatever will be, will be…and in this case it’s a beautiful joyride of wet slate, papaya seed, and chocolate-covered Bing cherries, rounded out by dark fruits and spices such as Damson plums, marionberry, clove, star anise and violets. Those deep purple fruits and spicy notes linger on a silky finish peppered with medium tannins. Go big or don’t bother.
