2012 El Dorado Syrah
A bold wine with a bright future. Grown in the Foothills like its parentage of the Northern Rhone, this wine is well structured and harmonious. Drink now or in the next ten years when the tannins will hold it together. Won Gold at the Amador County Wine Competition, Gold at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and Silver at the El Dorado Fair. Received a 92-point rating on Wine Enthusiast.
This wine brings out the variety’s richness and depth of fruit flavors, while keeping the texture smooth and pleasing. It’s very firm with tannins and acidity, yet not overly full-bodied. The ripe blackberry and cassis flavors have the intensity to match the structure and make for great balance overall. — J.G. (11/1/2014)
