Truchard Estate Syrah 2016, Carneros$34.00
The 2016 vintage is nearly identical to the outstanding 2016 harvest! A dry winter followed by a warm, dry spring resulted in excellent berry set and an above average crop. Moderate temperatures throughout the growing season easily brought the fruit to full maturity. The wines of 2014 are elegant, with intense aromas and flavors. A complex nose of cassis, ripe cherry, and black plum; with a hint of vanilla, leather, and white pepper. The mouth is layered with jammy flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, and currants; followed by mineral and cracked black pepper. Mouth-filling tannins provide an opulent finish of fruit and spice.
