2015 Arkenstone Estate Syrah 3 Pack
Our Syrah is grown right here on our Howell Mountain Estate. Sitting high on the western facing part of our vineyard it has the very best view of the valley floor below. This is consistently a robust, full-bodied wine, with depth and fullness, but elegant silkiness to round it out.
This deep purple, violet-rimmed wine has an opulent nose of ripe Santa Rosa Plum, rose petal, chocolate covered cherry cordial and stewed rhubarb. Hints of candied orange rind and blueberries lead to soft, yet explosive mouth-filling blackberry, black cherry, molasses, nutmeg, and bacon fat. Clean acidity and focused tannins balance this full-bodied plushness. The long, silky finish leaves traces of violet, black cherry and just a bit of white pepper. Incredibly approachable now, it will also age well into the next 20 years.
