2015 ExS Syrah, Sonoma Coast
The 2015 ExS Syrah is dense, powerful and bursting at the seams with explosive energy. Deep purple in hue with not much translucency. Aromas of smoked meat, dark berries, white pepper, green olive and grapefruit oil. The Syrah’s elegant aroma, is backed by big dark fruit, alluring spice, coupled with a velvety texture and savory flavor. Dried flowers, tobacco, blackberries, eucalyptus and licorice are all given an extra kick of intensity from the early-ripening vintage. This wine is impressively well structured and expressive.
