2015 Myriad Cellars Las Madres Vineyard 100 % Whole Cluster Syrah, Carneros

Opening with savory aromas of baking chocolate, forest floor and smoky/meaty overtones, the 2015 Las Madres Whole Cluster proceeds to fill-out on the palate with plenty of ample black fruit flavors and pepper. Rose petal, iron, smoke, tobacco and black pepper wrap around a huge core of dark fruit enveloping all senses. As in years past, the hallmark black olive tapenade element we celebrate, dances all the way through to the finish. Wonderfully complete and expressive, the 2015 boasts tons of richness, texture and power, while the whole cluster fermentation adds highly attractive floral/savory notes that give the wine much of its complexity and pure pedigree.  This is a fabulous showing from Myriad. Drinking wonderfully now and even better over the next 2 years.
