  • Tasting Notes

    • Dark and brooding in the glass, Estate Syrah 2021 is ink-black with a vivid magenta edge. The lifted aromatics of concentrated raspberry and crushed violets quickly become layer upon layer of exotic spices, fruit cake, pancetta, vanilla, and cocoa running the length of this wine’s luscious palate. Dense, saturated, ripe, and enticing in its detail – Estate Syrah 2021 delivers on every dimension.
