2016 Myriad Las Madres Vineyard Syrah
This hand crafted cool climate beauty offers a voluptuous expression of Rhone Style wine-growing, showing how the whole can be greater than the sum of its parts. In both the aromatics and on the palate, complexity abounds as it unfolds and reveals nuances from every Mike Smith attention to detail.. Ultraviolet to the rim, it has an extraordinary nose of black olive, anise, tobacco and loads of red currant. A combination of power and elegance from start to finish dictate the mid palate. Flush with black cherry liquor, mixed red fruits and light hints of espresso and tobacco are all present while signature olive, sea mist and iron intermingle fluently. The finish is long and smooth, making this wine irresistible and addictive to cool climate Syrah enthusiasts. Enjoy with a nice decant or watch this wine evolve and gain complexities over the next 4-5 years.
