2017 Highway 12 Reserve Syrah
This is one of those examples of a vineyard specific, small batch winemaking that we should shout about from the mountaintop. But--since that's not our gig--it's just an amazing, affordable Sonoma Valley Syrah that over-delivers to the max. The deep violet color and bright nose of boysenberry chutney lead you on a path of unfolding ripe blackfruit, allspice and tasty oak. Tingly tannins give this gem balance and longevity. Pair this with a Moroccan-spiced grilled leg of lamb. Drinks beautifully now or hold for 7-10 years.
