2003 Estate Bottled Syrah
Our fourth vintage, this 2003 Napa Valley Estate Bottled Syrah is made from two well-known vineyards: Hestan in the Eastern foothills of the valley and Page-Nord just south of Yountville. On the nose, our Syrah shows aromas of blueberry, chocolate cherry, leather, and tobacco. This inky, dark red wine fills the mouth with firm, meaty tannins, complementing a rich mix of cherry, black cherry, chocolate, and leather. With an extremely long finish, this well-structured Syrah begs for the accompaniment of food--anything roasted and in need of a wine able to accent and deepen the experience of hearty meat dishes.
