In contrast to the more inky and high alcohol Syrahs coming out of California, this Syrah is a great example of beautiful fruit and unique winemaking stylistic choices; the grapes were harvested slightly earlier than is common for Syrah and the winemaker limited skin exposure after primary fermentation, creating a vibrant and drinkable Syrah. The aroma is bright with berries and baking spices, while the palate presents tart cherry, bright acidity and herbaceous undertones. The fruity, yet full-bodied dry red carries you to a voluptuous tannic finish. This unique Syrah was harvested by our friends at New Mexico Vineyards in Deming, NM.
