1772 Syrah 2018
In 2018, Edna Valley experienced a traditional, cool growing season - one of the longest we have ever experienced. This vintage shaped a Syrah with all the attractive savory and fresh notes we appreciate for this varietal. A juicy acidity leading with pomegranate, black cherry juice, graphite, beef bark, while the firm tannins coat the palate with notes of portobello mushroom and brown tobacco on the finish.
Notes and Pairing Suggestions from Master Sommelier Bob Bath:
"Syrah is one of those rare varieties that is equally expressive in cool and warm climates. In addition to the cool Edna Valley climate, the gravelly / sandy soils on our Edna Ranch naturally limit the yields of our Syrah vines, leading to more concentrated flavors in the wine and the 2018 vintage provided ideal ripeness. Edna Valley is home to some of the most famous Syrah in California, and this wine furthers that claim. This wine has a rich, boysenberry fruitiness that will probably result in an empty bottle much quicker than normal. On the other hand, it will be fun to follow this wine’s development over the next ten years as it gains even more complexity. This delicious pork marbella recipe is an ideal match." View Recipe
