As in vintages past, this Syrah is full of umami flavors. The wine is so expressive on the nose; you’ll immediately pick out aromas of purple plum, boysenberry and grape jelly. On the palate you’ll taste fruit leather and muddled blackberries. This is not the sort of wine you’d expect in an overly sunny year. No, rather this wine comes off lean and refined. Soft tannins take you through a finish of coffee, anise and graphite. Truly a unique and multi-faceted expression of Napa Valley Syrah.
