Tasting Notes
The nose on this lovely Syrah is absolutely captivating. The glass at first pour explodes of orange crème then settles down by introducing orchid and violet while next, just to stir the senses, throws in a peek of white pepper and sandalwood spices. This aromatic symphony of exotic flower and spice melodically persists begging the question “is it necessary to taste?” At last I do and am mesmerized by the wine’s dance of magical balance between its silky texture, fine tannins and beautiful acidity that playfully encompass a cocktail of pomegranate and blue berry cream.

-Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
