2017 Coombsville Syrah
Our 2017 Syrah comes from a diminutive vineyard on the southern edge of Napa Valley in an AVA known as Coombsville. Cooled by evening breezes from San Pablo Bay, this vineyard produces fully ripened fruit with layered aromatics, good acid balance and rich, complex structure. Our 2017 Syrah shows classic varietal aromas of black cherry, ripe plum, anise and mulberry with nuances of cedar, leather, dried herbs and white pepper. On the palate it is soft and mouth-filling, with fine acid balance and ripe tannins. The finish is long and smooth with flavors of toasty oak, dark chocolate and blue fruit.
It is a delicious wine to drink now with robust grilled meats and soft ripened cheese. With 2-4 years of additional cellaring this delicious wine will show even more complexity and softness.
