2014 X-Series Syrah
This stylized wine showcases all of the hallmarks of the site from which it hails from. Opening with white pepper, cocoa powder and bay leaf our X-Series Syrah has weight and the acidity to match it. A complex mid-palate of savory oak, dark blackberries and blueberries, and a hint of fresh cut agave elevate this wine to an earthy finish packed withdark chocolate, fig and peppercorn.
This cool climate Syrah hails from See Canyon, near Avila Beach, and only about 5 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Small batch fermented and aged in 33% new French oak and 15% new Hungarian oak this wine evolves for 18 months in barrel.
