2018 Bien Nacido Syrah
Pink peppercorns and violet flowers sprinkled over summer rain moistened soils. It is almost poetic what this wine can say. A true Midsummer Night’s Dream, the liveliness of the fruit is faultless. Crunchy blueberry, lingonberry, and spicy black currants. You can expect olive brine and roasted meats to evolve with 5-8 years in bottle, but the youth and vigor of this Syrah will stick around for a while.
Hand-harvested at night, and fermented with native yeast and malolactic fermentations. Aged 16 months in French oak; 25% new. This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
