The 2017 'Foothills Reserve' Syrah is a simply magical new wine from Matt Reynvaan. The nose takes on highly hedonistic tones, showing a beautiful aromatic range, including orange zest, umami, bacon fat, roasted dates and fresh sage that all collide in the glass. Silky smooth on the mid-palate the wine unveils remarkable depth and salinity. The elegance is extraordinary, with a sensational mouthfeel as flavors of Hoisin sauce, blood orange, meat blood and umami with wild blackberry cobbler flavors all contine to build on the palate leading up to the exceedingly long finish lingers long on. Another sensational release from Reynvaan in this vintage that shoud have a brilliant future ahead.
