Capo Creek Syrah 2016
Sit back and inhale the Capo Creek Syrah 2016! Beautiful notes of red fruits, cassis, and baking spices. Just in time to pair with cool nights so throw a log on the fire and enjoy! Medium weight and light on its feet, this wine is all about verve and spice. The fruit is soft and delicate, and takes a back seat to the umami-filled, mineral-driven, savory Syrah flavors. Very exotic and intriguing with a haunting quality to it…very special stuff!
