2008 Prix Reserve Syrah
Prix Reserve Syrah, vintage 2008, is our first Reserve Syrah from our Wieruszowski Vineyard on Vichy Avenue in the new Coombsville Appellation.
The bright, fresh, saturated color is the first thing that strikes you with this Syrah. As you move into the glass you find this wine is beautifully deeply aromatic, you could smell it for years and not find all the nuances hiding in the nose. It starts with wonderfully ripe blueberries and deep dark red fruits and continues with hints of the spice of cinnamon and essence of vanilla.
The mouth feel of this wine is rich and supple, lingering on the tongue and across the palate, like the first kiss of true love. Black pepper, clove and rosemary mingle and play with the dark berries found in this sensuous Syrah. Structured for aging, but lovely now, this wine will be one to cherish for years to come.
