Opens with black raspberry and notes of clove and espresso which interweaves with black currant and a touch of cardamom on the palate. Elegant fine-grained tannins lead into a powerful juicy finish.
A late spring and moderate summer followed by warm fall days gave this Syrah beautiful aromatics and afforded the hang-time required for full ripening of tannins. Planted in 2001 in our own Hidden Valley Vineyard, a bowl shaped valley behind the winery on Naramata Road.
