2014 Highway 12 Reserve Syrah
Following the amazing 2013 vintage is tough but we're unflappable in the cellar. The '14 Reserve Syrah is a wide-ranging sipper that over-delivers from the nose to the finish. With its deep purple color to the nose of rich plum, blackberry and spice, this wine takes your palate pro. You'll get herbal and lavender, pulled together and balanced by the dark fruit and roasted coffee bean notes all supported by light tannins. It's wildly eclectic and we love it. Pair it with Chinese five-spice seared duck breastl atop cilantro ginger wild rice and citrus braised cabbage.
