2016 Myriad Halcon Vineyard Syrah

The wine critics have touted the Halcon Vineyard as “More Côte Rôtie than Côte Rôtie! Tapenade and bay leaf notes envelop your senses, notes of hoisin and soy sauce with black and red berries smooth into depth, complexity, and an exploding and memorable mouthfeel.  This inky colored beauty is darker and more mineral-laced than the Sangiacomo Vineyard and gives up lots of black raspberry, scorched earth, black pepper and loads of classic Syrah violets and floral nuances. A true Syrah lovers dream,  forget about this charmer for 3-4 years and enjoy what time has to offer.
