2015 Syrah deLanda Vineyard
Organically grown Syrah picked from the select “Old Block” and upper slope of our estate and aged 17 months in neutral French oak. Fermented with only native yeast and completely unfined and unfiltered, this is the purest expression of our vineyard’s Syrah.
This smooth, deep Syrah is drinking exceptionally well right now. Aromas of black cherries, blackberry fruit leather and eucalyptus. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied with soft powdery tannins and notes of brambly wild berries and black pepper. A great balance of earthy and fruit notes.
Pair this with herb roasted hearty vegetable dishes, grilled tri tip (and just about everything on the BBQ!) or soft creamy cheese.
