Tasting Notes
Elegance and beauty best describe this dark garnet colored Syrah that floats a vine woven potpourri basket of dried lavender, violet, and honeysuckle petals with mild spice down a satin river of blueberry and huckleberry reduction, swirling into an eddy of Crème de Cassis and Chambord Frambois while “the mist of a smoke of a distant fire” lingers over the slow moving current that has cut shallow banks through soft loamy soils. A requisite long rest on the palate exudes languishing intense and juicy flavors on a riverbed of soft tannins. This is… Syrah!

-Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
