Syrah 2015

On the palate, still young, the wine exhibits velvety tannins with hints of blueberry, pepper, tobacco, spiced meat and plum. 2015 was very limited due to minimal fruit on the vine.

Description

[vc_row gap=”20″ kswr_row_top_decor_enabled=”false” kswr_row_bottom_decor_enabled=”false”][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Shokrian vineyard produces some of the most vividly colored wines I have ever seen without any rough handling. Intense aromas of leather, dark fruits, graphite, and tobacco integrate beautifully with French oak. On the palate, still young, the wine exhibits velvety tannins with hints of blueberry, pepper, tobacco, spiced meat and plum.

2015 was very limited as there was minimal fruit on the vine. About 1-1.5 tons per acre that year, the intensity of the vintage shows immediately on the nose. Gentle cellar techniques using gravity and long cool fermentations lasting three weeks preserved the fresh fruit notes. Aged for a year and half in mostly new French oak, the wine is great for immediate consumption but will reward the collector willing to wait for 3-5 years. For the truly patient, this wine should age well for 10-15 years. – Winemaker, Morgan Clendenen.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner gap=”20″][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1543925264376{margin-top: 20px !important;}”]
