Syrah, Californio – 2013

An appealing nose of intense cardamom, black fruit, sweet spice and pepper shades into secondary notes of cigar box, meat and graphite. Fresh blackberry, sweet spices and minerality open up in the glass, coupled with a juicy meatiness. The palate is dense and spicy with great concentration, energy and balance. The polished grip of fine-grained tannins carries the wine to a lengthy finish, warmed by classic black pepper notes. —Stéphane Vivier, Winemaker
