2006 Syrah – Dry Creek Valley
This powerful, rich, aromatic Syrah was sourced from steep slopes above the Dry Creek Valley. The long, warm growing season of 2006 allowed for optimum ripeness, allowing Syrah to display its classic personality. The color is a dark black/red. Aromas of blackberry compote, dark chocolate, cumin, rosemary, white pepper, and flowers are echoed on the palate in waves of rich, powerful fruit. The finish is dense and long, with tannins that are almost completely enveloped by the fruit.
