CHERRY RIDGE VINEYARD SYRAH 2014
Another drought year leading to water stressed vines produced a richly phenolic wine further intensified with a healthy dose of whole cluster fermentation. Swirling the glass offers up dizzying aromas of freshly picked berries and mom's delights roasting in the kitchen: blackberries, cherry pie, pepper, tobacco and bacon. The skillful addition of new wood is expressed in the subtle nuance of vanilla and smoke. A velvety pillow greets the palate, followed by luscious blackberries, balanced acidity and sturdy yet refined tannins that linger alongside pleasing notes of berry and crispy bacon.
