2016 Kuleto Syrah, Napa Valley

$70.00

There are few places in the Napa Valley with the right combination of shale soils that limit a naturally vigorous variety, constant winds that interrupt bloom yielding open clusters, warm days, cool nights – all of which add up to perfect growing conditions for this primally evocative grape variety. I say ‘primally’ because Syrah has an animal-like nature with its smoky charcuterie elements and its wet stone-like character. Dark and inky in the glass, our 2016 Syrah offers bold aromas and flavors of wild blueberries, cherry cola, black pepper and lavender. This vintage, we co-fermented it with a portion of Petit Verdot for additional depth and structure.
