Tasting Notes
At the foot of the Vaca Mountains which outline the eastern edge of the Napa Valley, lies our Destin Vineyard. Each year we select only a few of the best rows and designate them for our very limited Estate Syrah, and this 2016 Estate Syrah is a beautiful monument to this wonderful vineyard. There is a density to the red/black color of the wine that suggests this wine will be richly layered, and this suggestion is definitely confirmed when approaching the glass. Aromas of exotic spices and white pepper are followed quickly with layer after layer of dark fruit. The flavors on the palate are bountiful and contain those delicious dark fruits joined with smoked meat, black pepper, and cedar. This is not a wine that tells all of its secrets right away, but it slowly unfolds in the glass rewarding patience and attention. This thoughtful unveiling of flavors and firm tannins give this wine the potential to age for many years when cellared properly. Whether it is the lingering flavors that stay with you long after you set your glass down or the methodical evolution of the wine in the glass, this wine will certainly make a lasting impression.
