Sourced from the Freewater Rocks Vineyard, this begins with aromatics of sagebrush, bacon fat, cigar box and smoke. The layered aromatics impress. This has a really plush mouthfeel, leading to black olive tapenade, wild blackberry cobbler, smoke and leather with wet stone flavors that sit alongside some nice minerality. The stony aspect is subtle. This is an awesome Syrah made from an exceedingly hot vintage. (Best 2017-2025) - September, 2017 (OB)
