2016 axr syrah
This Syrah comes from Songbird Vineyard located in the hills of Napa. Because of its southern location, it lies in a cooler climate that protects the acidity and the aromatics. This extends the ripening process bringing complexity and elegance. This wine has a beautiful fruit with a backbone of acidity making it a wine that is worth aging as well as drinking today.
On the rim: dense ruby colored core with bright fuchsia on the rim
On the nose: ripe raspberry with Asian plum and wild strawberry lingering on vanilla-gingerbread with mascarpone
On the palate: bright red cherry and blackberry cobbler with baking spices, graham cracker, sweet vanilla meringue lingering on herbaceous undertones, velvety tannins and a long rich finish
