Multi-layered Syrah from the ancient soils of Northridge Vineyard. Super focused black cherry, plum and lavender run riot in the nose. The palate is not to be outdone with black molasses, velvet smoking jacket, wild mint, black crushed volcanic rock, silky tannins, vibrant energy and a persistence that continues the ridiculously long finish.
The nose of the 2016 Syrah The Hidden Northridge Vineyard offers a round, open-knit and voluptuous expression of dark red and black fruit characteristics-dusty plum skin, blackberry jus and cherry compote-over a wet rock minerality and savory black spices with hints of sweet oak. Full-bodied, the palate is generous but still has a rigidity to the mid-palate, with a note of bitter espresso and gripping tannic backbone. Ending with a long, spicy finish, the wine is going to go the distance and live for decades if you can just forget about it in your cellar. It will be a lucky day if you add any of the 684-case production to your cellar.
