2013Syrah

Varietal Composition

100% Syrah

Tasting Notes

From the Royal Slope, the 2013 Syrah is just ever so slightly lighter at the rim than the 2012, yet sports the same saturated ruby/purple color. It offers more cured meats, tapenade, ground pepper and tobacco leaf notes, with a rich, sexy core of plum and blueberry fruit. Broad, expansive, and sexy on the palate, with tons of fruit, it stays lively, balanced and fresh, and is another beautiful wine. It's much more evolved than the 2012, but both are beautiful wines.
