100% Syrah coming from Elephant Mountain Vineyard, the 2020 Audentes displays a dark cherry core with a neon purple rim. A stunning nose of dark cherry, powdered graphite, dried herbs, and dried lilacs pop from the glass. The palate brings additional components of bacon fat, black olives, boysenberry preserves, and a touch of allspice. Crunchy tannins, elevated acidity, and a full body complete the wine. It’s still young, and will be much better in 2024, then enjoy this wine over the next decade. 97 cases produced.
