Sourced from mulitple vineyard locations in the Yorkville Highlands, this Syrah has aromas of black currant and flavors of ripe blackberries

Vintage Notes: 

The 2012 vintage was a welcome relief following the challenges of 2010 and 2011. A wet winter was balanced by a moderate, slightly dry spring, with bud break and veraison occurring several weeks later than usual. Bestowing optimal conditions for slow, even ripening, a long Indian summer extended into early October. Harvest commenced approximately two weeks later than previous years, and was condensed into a few short weeks, with all of our fruit in by November 1.

Wine Profile: 

This medium bodied wine is sure to please those who are partial to Syrah, from the inviting nose of spice and dried herbs, through to the red and purple fruits on the palate. Its bright acidity provides an ideal balance to the firm but juicy structure.
