2020 Desert Hills Syrah
Our 2020 Syrah has a spicy, complex, yet also a very meaty profile to go with lots of mulled red and black fruits, bacon fat, fruitcake, and dried flower aromas and flavors. This medium to full-bodied Syrah has the forward, plush style of the a cooler vintage yet backs it up with plenty of underlying density and tannins. Drink this wine over the next 8-10 years.
The fruit was hand harvested and carefully sorted before being destemmed. Fermentation proceeded steadily in a stainless steel tank using a combination of indigenous and cultivated yeast. The wine then spent 20 months in 15% new French and Hungarian oak to mature.
