2012 Black Ankle Vineyards Syrah Leaf-Stone

Estate: Black Ankle Vineyards

Region: North Central Piedmont, Frederick County, Maryland, United States of America


Tasting Note:May 27, 2016

Third red from Black Ankle and first Syrah. Bright ruby red. Love the nose, slight iron and savory notes. Slightly stinky and almost a note of compost. Palate had some slight greenery and savory notes. Undertones of red fruits too. Moderate tannins (7/10) with some nice acidity. Moderate body and long, lingering finish. Will gain some nice complexity with time.

Only 220 cases produced.
