One of only a handful of Syrah plantings in Stags Leap, our one acre of mature Syrah vines sit in the region’s legendary volcanic soil just under our Angelo’s Hillside. Throughout the summer, vines bask in the sun, creating a fuller-bodied, complex, Syrah.
You have probably heard it over and over, but 2013 was an astounding vintage, especially for our Syrah. Calling this wine complex would be an understatement, as notes of dark fruit cascade into baking spice, black olive, dried leather, rosemary and vanilla. Soft on entry with fine, integrated tannins as it opens up, this beautiful wine ends with a polished, smooth finish.
Uniquely complementary to our bordeaux offerings, this is an elegantly flavorful wine. Our advice? Drink now. But if you’re patient, this Syrah will reward you all the way through 2024.
