2019 Bien Nacido Estate SyrahCalifornia, USA
“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. 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.
Composition: 99% Syrah, 1% Viognier
