Damp bay leaf and forest floor aromas give depth to the brawny, stewed elderberry core to the nose of this bottling from vines grown in volcanic soils. Roasted fruit flavors on the palate are layered in Indian spices, thyme and eucalyptus leaf, with a solid peppercorn presence deep into the finish.
Aromas of dark fruits, along with herbaceous nuances of black tea, oregano, eucalyptus, cedar, and slate greet you with our complex 2020 Estate Syrah. Full-bodied, bold and tannic, with robust flavors of blackberry, black cherry, and chocolate envelop the palate from entry to finish.
