Then sweet but a bit youthfully bound up, with terrific syrah fruit complicated by just enough wild, gamey character to give it personality. Finishes long and lively. This was extremely promising from barrel and has turned out very well. Winemaker Mark Herold destemmed the fruit, then added back 60% of the stems for the fermentation.
